What is Adipic Acid?

Adipic acid, as an important chemical raw material, is a linear dicarboxylic acid with the chemical formula C6H10O4. It is named after its molecular skeleton of six carbon atoms, with a carboxyl group (-COOH) at each end. Adipic acid is mainly produced through industrial synthesis methods and is one of the key components in the manufacture of nylon 6,6. It reacts with hexamethylenediamine to form nylon polymer, which is widely used in textiles, engineering plastic products and other industries. In addition, it is used in the production of polyurethane foams, plasticizers, lubricants and as a food additive under certain conditions. In the chemical industry chain, adipic acid has attracted much attention due to its wide range of uses and indispensable status.

Adipic Acid Uses

Nylon 6,6 production: The main use of adipic acid is in the polymer materials industry. It is one of the main raw materials for the production of nylon 6,6 resin. When adipic acid and hexamethylenediamine form nylon 6,6 salt through a condensation reaction, nylon 6,6 fiber and plastic are obtained through melt polymerization. These materials are widely used in automobile parts, wire and cable insulation, carpet yarn, webbing and other materials. Various industrial textiles and engineering plastic components.

Polyurethane (PU) foam: Adipic acid is an important component in the manufacture of polyurethane foams, such as soft and rigid polyurethane foams, which are widely used in furniture upholstery, mattresses, automotive interiors, building insulation materials, and refrigeration equipment and other fields.

Plasticizers and plasticizers: Adipic acid and its derivatives are used to produce plasticizers that enhance the flexibility and processing properties of other polymeric materials.

Lubricants and lubricant additives: Adipic acid can be an important component in some lubricant formulations to enhance lubricant performance.

Food and beverage industry: Subject to certain regulations, adipic acid can be used as a food additive, such as INS No. 355, to adjust the acidity of food and beverages, provide specific flavors, and serve as a stabilizer and buffer.

Personal care products: Adipic acid can be used as a pH adjuster and skin conditioning agent in cosmetics and personal care products to help optimize the stability and skin affinity of product formulations.

Other applications: Adipic acid is also used in the pharmaceutical industry, in the production of dyes and pigments, and as a chemical intermediate in the synthesis of other chemicals.

Adipic acid Advantages

Ideal raw materials for making nylon 6,6: adipic acid reacts with hexamethylenediamine to form nylon 6,6 salt, which can be made into nylon 6,6 fiber and engineering plastics after further polymerization. These materials have high strength, wear resistance, and heat resistance. , corrosion resistance and other excellent properties, it is widely used in automotive parts, electronic and electrical, textile industry, aerospace and other fields.

Versatility: In addition to being used in nylon production, adipic acid can also be used as a raw material for polyurethane foam to improve the elasticity and insulation properties of the product; as a plasticizer to improve the flexibility of plastics; and as a sour agent in the food industry and stabilizers; in cosmetics as pH adjusters and skin conditioners.

Safety: As a chemical raw material, adipic acid has a low risk coefficient. When used according to correct operating procedures, it has little impact on human health and the environment. It is recognized as a safe cosmetic and personal care product ingredient.

High market maturity: The production technology of adipic acid is mature, global production capacity is sufficient, market demand is stable, and it is easy to purchase and apply on a large scale.
