Chemical Properties:

  1. Nicotinic acid, also known as niacin or vitamin B3, is a white crystal or crystalline powder, odorless or has a slight odor, slight sour taste. Melting point is 234-237℃. Easily soluble in hot water, hot ethanol, alkaline water, propylene glycol, and chloroform. Slightly soluble in water and ethanol; 100ml room temperature water can dissolve 1.6g. Insoluble in ether and ester solutions. The PH of 1% aqueous solution is 3.0-4.0. Stable in heat, acidity and alkalinity.
  2. Nicotinic acid can produce a variety of adverse effects, depending on the intake and health of the consumer. The skin flushing reaction produced by nicotinic acid has been recognized for more than 70 years (Bean 1978). When taken on an empty stomach, crystalline nicotinic acid in doses as small as 10 mg may produce a mild and transient, but noticeable, flushing reaction. While not desirable, such reactions produce no known adverse consequences, and they are almost never perceptible when small amounts of nicotinic acid are taken in tablet or capsule form or consumed as part of food.


  1. Nicotinic acid is an important factor in delivering hydrogen and fighting pellagra in organisms; it helps maintain skin and nerve health and stimulate digestion.
  2. Nicotinic acid or niacinamide are used to treat and prevent pellagra. This is a disease caused by niacin deficiency. Niacin is also used to treat high cholesterol. In some cases, niacin taken with colestipol can work as well as colestipol and a statin medicine.
    Niacin USP granular is used for food fortification, as dietary supplement and as an intermediate of pharmaceuticals.
  3. Niacin feed grade is used as vitamin for poultry, swines, ruminants, fish, dogs and cats, etc. It is also used as intermediate for nicotinic acid derivatives and technical applications.
  4. Nicotinic acid and nicotinamide are colorless crystalline substances. Each is insol uble or only sparingly soluble in organic solvents. Nicotinic acid is slightly soluble in water and ethanol; nicotinamide is very soluble in water and moderately soluble in ethanol
  5. Nicotinic acid is amphoteric and forms salts with acids as well as bases. Its car boxyl group can form esters and anhydrides and can be reduced. Both nicotinic acid and nicotinamide are very stable in dry form, but in solution nicotinamide is hydro lyzed by acids and bases to yield nicotinic ac
