Application

Racemic mandelic acid in the form of mandelates is generally used as a pharmaceutical component due to its analgesic, antirheumatic, and spasmolytic effects. It undergoes resolution to form (+)- and (-)-enantiomers that are widely used as chiral resolving agents in enantioseparation of various other racemates via salt formation.
