DESCRIPTION OF ADIPIC ACID

Adipic Acid is the organic compound with the formula (CH2)4(COOH)2. It is a white, crystalline compound with a slight acid taste and a nil to very faint odor. Slightly soluble in water and soluble in alcohol and acetone. It is mainly as a precursor for the production of nylon. Adipic acid is a white crystalline powder (monoclinic system)
Adipic acid occurs rarely naturally in the environment. Large amount is produced by oxidation of cyclohexane (which is produced from the petroleum product benzene or butadiene) with air, nitric acid and metal catalyst. The result is a mixture of mainly hexanedicarboxylic acid. In a subsequent purification step, formed dimethyl esters are removed by distillation. Technical adipic acid is one of the cleanest substances made in large quantities is the simplest peroxide (a compound with an oxygen-oxygen single bond).
