Glutaric anhydride Uses

 Glutaric anhydride(108-55-4) is mainly used in the production of rubber, plastics, resins, medicines, etc.

Glutaric anhydride Production

1. With the dehydrating agent, such asacetic anhydride,  heating the glutaric acid to dehydrate it and obtain  glutaric anhydride(108-55-4).
2. Heating mixture of binary carboxylic acid (succinic acid, glutaric acid, adipic acid) to dehydrate succinic acid and glutaric acid, then take some of the distillate under a certain temperature to get glutaric anhydride(108-55-4) .
