Chemical Information
FooDB NameHexanedioic acid
DescriptionConstituent of beet juice, pork fat, guava fruit (Psidium guajava), papaya (Carica papaya) and raspberry (Rubus idaeus). Food acidulant Adipic acid is a compound of the class of carboxylic acids that is derived from oxidation of various fats. It is a white crystalline powder appearing as an acid in aqueous circumstances, though it is not highly soluble (wikipedia); Adipic acid, like most carboxylic acids, is a mild skin irritant. It is mildly toxic, with LD50 of 3600 mg/kg for oral ingestion by rats.; By far the majority of the 2.5 billion kg of adipic acid produced annually is used as monomer for the production of nylon by a polycondensation reaction with hexamethylene diamine forming 6,6-nylon. Other major applications also involve polymers: it is a monomer for production of Polyurethane and its esters are plasticizers, especially in PVC. Hexanedioic acid is found in many foods, some of which are common beet, red beetroot, fats and oils, and root vegetables.
