Basic Info of Citric Acid Monohydrate

What is Citric Acid Monohydrate?

Citric acid monohydrate, likewise called citric acid, scientific name 3-hydrocarbyl-3-carboxyglutaric acid, citric acid monohydrate exists in nature in lemons, oranges, plums, plums, pears, peaches, figs, etc. Amongst the fruits, the acid content is greater in the premature ones. Citric acid monohydrate is an anemic translucent crystal or white crystalline powder, odorless, with a strong and also enjoyable sour preference, which gradually weathers in warm air as well as deliquescence in humid air. According to various crystallization conditions, the crystal types include anhydrous citric acid as well as citric acid having crystal water. Business citric acid is mainly anhydrous citric acid as well as citric acid monohydrate. Citric acid monohydrate is crystallized from an aqueous option at a reduced temperature (below 36.6 ° C). The item after separation and drying out has a molecular weight of 210.14, a melting point of 70 to 75 ° C as well as a density of 1.542. Put in dry air, the crystal water in citric acid monohydrate will certainly escape and also weather. Anhydrous citric acid is crystallized in a liquid solution over 36.6 ° C, with a molecular weight of 192.12 and a density of 1.665. The important temperature for the conversion of citric acid monohydrate to citric acid anhydrous is 36.6 ° C.

Citric acid monohydrate is commonly used in the food sector, and also can likewise be utilized as a feed additive, safe cleaning agent, mordant, and so on. At the same time, citric acid monohydrate can likewise be utilized in pharmaceuticals, chemicals, light sector, atomic energy, environmental management as well as other commercial areas, and is additionally an important resources for cosmetics, steel cleaning agents, materials, cardboard, cigarette, electroplating, and so on. The discovery of citric acid monohydrate has a background of greater than 200 years. As early as 1784, somebody first separated citric acid crystals from lemon juice. In 1917, citric acid monohydrate was generated by fermentation of Aspergillus niger, as well as commercial production of citric acid monohydrate began. The commercial manufacturing of citric acid monohydrate in China began in 1963. During that time, there were not many suppliers, as well as the range and output were really little, which can not meet the residential demand. The domestic market remained in short supply and the need depended upon imports. Citric acid monohydrate is a requirement in the food industry as well as entails lots of commercial areas connected to individuals’s lives.

With the development of China’s citric acid monohydrate sector, the items remain to increase, as well as the quality of citric acid monohydrate likewise remains to enhance. Because citric acid monohydrate is mostly utilized in the food market as well as medication, it is related to individuals’s health and life safety, so there are rigorous policies on the high quality demands of citric acid monohydrate. China has likewise created relevant requirements for citric acid monohydrate, which are progressively according to global standards.
