General Description

Ammonium propionate is a chemical compound that is composed of ammonia and propionic acid. It is a white crystalline solid with a faint odor and is commonly used as a food preservative and mold inhibitor due to its antimicrobial properties. Ammonium propionate is also used in the production of plastics, pharmaceuticals, and agricultural chemicals. It is considered safe for consumption when used in small quantities, and is regulated by food safety authorities to ensure its proper use in food products. However, it can be irritating to the skin, eyes, and respiratory system, and exposure to high concentrations should be avoided. Overall, ammonium propionate is a versatile chemical with various industrial and food applications.

Check Digit Verification of cas no

The CAS Registry Mumber 17496-08-1 includes 8 digits separated into 3 groups by hyphens. The first part of the number,starting from the left, has 5 digits, 1,7,4,9 and 6 respectively; the second part has 2 digits, 0 and 8 respectively.
Calculate Digit Verification of CAS Registry Number 17496-08:
131 % 10 = 1
So 17496-08-1 is a valid CAS Registry Number.

The present invention generally relates to the partial chemical neutralization of organic acids to make compositions used in animal nutrition. More particularly, the present invention relates to the use of a cooled reactor to prepare aqueous compositions of partially neutralized organic acids by a continuous or semi-continuous method of reacting an alkali with an organic acid dispersed or dissolved in an aqueous system. The alkali source is present in an amount less than the stiochometric amount required for complete neutralization of the organic acid.

A novel method is provided whereby a free organic acid can be produced particularly from an ammonium salt of an organic acid having a high melting point obtainable by bioconversion of a carbon source in the presence of a neutralizing agent, efficiently at a low cost, and the used material for reaction and a byproduct can be recycled for reuse without being disposed. An ammonium salt of organic acid A such as a dicarboxylic acid, a tricarboxylic acid or an amino acid is subjected to reactive crystallization by means of acid B such as a monocarboxylic acid satisfying the following formula (1), to separate free organic acid A in solid form:pKa(A) ≦ pKa(B) where pKa(A) and pKa(B) represent ionization indices of organic acid A and acid B, respectively, provided that when they have plural values, they represent the minimum pKa among them. The crystallization mother liquor after precipitating and separating organic acid A is, after separating acid B and then an ammonium salt of acid B, recycled for use in the reactive crystallization step. The ammonium salt of acid B is decomposed into acid B and ammonia, which are recycled for use in the reactive crystallization step and as a neutralizing agent in the bioconversion step, respectively.
