Application

Maleic anhydride may be used in the synthesis of unsaturated polyester resins and as a reactant in synthesizing important products such as agricultural chemicals, lubricant additives and food acidulatents.

General description

The structure of maleic acid consists of four carbon molecules along with carboxylate groups on either ends, with a double bond between the central carbon atoms. The anhydride of maleic acid has five atoms in its cyclic molecule, the unsaturated bond undergoes free radical polymerization in the presence of an initiator.
