Description

General description

Succinic acid, an organic acid is an important building block that has a wide range of synthetic applications. Presently it is synthesized from petrochemical compounds. Due to its increasing demand many bio-based methods have been proposed for its synthesis as an efficient alternative. Its utility as a low shrinkage additive (LSA) in unsaturated polyester resin (UPR) has been investigated.

Application

Succinic acid may be used in the following processes:
• As a leaching agent in extracting lithium (Li), cobalt from used Li-ion batteries and magnesium from magnesite ore.
• Synthesis of new elastic polyesters.
• As a cocrystallising agent in the synthesis of cocrystals with organic molecules.
