what is levulinic acid?

Levulinic acid is a polyfunctional compound containing carbonyl, α-hydrogen and carboxyl groups. It is the basic raw material for the synthesis of various light chemical products. It has a wide range of uses in organic synthesis, industrial and agricultural, and pharmaceutical industries. The acid hydrogenation product γ-valerolactone is a high-grade solvent and can be used as an intermediate product for the preparation of synthetic rubber, cold-resistant plasticizers and surfactants. Chlorolevulinic acid can be used as a bacteriostatic agent for industrial circulating water.

Levulinic acid Uses

1. It can be used as the raw materials of medicine, spices and paint, and used as solvent.

2. This product has wide applications. Levulinic acid can be used as both a carboxylic acid and can also be used as a ketone for reaction for making various kinds of products through esterification, halogenation, hydrogenation, oxidation dehydrogenation, condensation, etc., including resins, pharmaceuticals, spices, solvents, rubber and plastic additives, lubricants additives, surfactants and so on. In the pharmaceutical industry, its calcium salt (calcium fructose) can be used for intravenous injection. As a nutritional medicine, it helps to boost the formation of bone and maintain the normal excitability of nerves and muscles. It can also used for the production of indomethacin and plant hormones. Levulinic acid manufactured bisphenol acid can be made of water-soluble resin, used in the paper industry to produce filter paper. Levulinic acid is also an intermediate of pesticides and dyes.

3. Used for biochemical reagents, but also for organic synthesis

4. It can be used as an important chemical raw material or solvents. It can be used for the manufacturing of medicine (intravenous injection, indomethacin, etc.), resin (bisphenol acid water-soluble resin), spices (spices or tobacco spices), paint, paint, pesticides, and surfactants.

5. It can be used for biochemical research; manufacturing of esters and drugs. It is also the inhibitor of chlorophyll synthesis.
