  • Description Adipic acid is a crystalline powder with practically no odor. It has the lowest acidity of any of the acids commonly used in foods and has excellent buffering capacity in the range of pH 2.5 to 3.0. Like succinic and fumaric acid, adipic acid is practically nonhygroscopic. Its addition to foods imparts a smooth, tart taste. In grape-flavored products, it adds a lingering supplementary flavor and gives an excellent set to food powders containing gelatin. As a result, adipic acid has found a wide number of uses as an accidulant in dry powdered food mixtures, especially in those products having delicate flavors and where addition of tang to the flavor is undesirable. Its aqueous solutions have the lowest acidity of any of the common food acids. For concentrations from 0.5 to 2.4 g/100 mL, the pH of its solution varies less than half a unit. Hence, it can be used as a buffering agent to maintain acidities within the range of 2.5 to 3.0. This is highly desirable in certain foods, yet the pH is low enough to inhibit the browning of most fruits and other foodstuffs.
  • Physical properties Adipic acid is a straight-chain dicarboxylic acid that exists as a white crystalline compound at standard temperature and pressure. Adipic acid is one of the most important industrial chemicals and typically ranks in the top 10 in terms of volume used annually by the chemical industry.
  • Uses Adipic acid’s main use is in the production of 6,6 nylon. It is also used in resins, plasticizers, lubricants, polyurethanes, and food additives. Adipic Acid is primarily used in the synthesis of nylon. It has been used as a reagent in the solid-state polymerization of nylon analogs. Adipic Acid is an acidulant and flavoring agent. it is characterized as stable, nonhygroscopic, and slightly soluble, with a water solubility of 1.9 g/100 ml at 20°c. it has a ph of 2.86 at 0.6% usage level at 25°c. it is used in powdered drinks, beverages, gelatin desserts, loz- enges, and canned vegetables. it is also used as a leavening acidulant in baking powder. it can be used as a buffering agent to maintain acidities within a range of ph 2.5–3.0. it is occasionally used in edi- ble oils to prevent rancidity.
