Application

3-Hydroxybutyric acid was used in enantioselective synthesis of D-(-)-3-hydroxybutyric acid by Escherichia coli.

General description

3-Hydroxybutyric acid forms films of random copolymer with (R)-3-hydroxypentanoic acid, (R)-3-hydroxyhexanoic acid, 4-hydroxybutyric acid, 6-hydroxyhexanoic acid and (S,S)-lactide by the melt-crystallized method. It is an important intermediate for the fine chemical industry.
