What is c acid

2-Amino-4,8-naphthalenedisulfonic acid, also known as c acid, is a chemical compound with the molecular formula C10H9NO6S2. It is an aromatic amino acid with a disulfonic acid group (-S(O)2OH) attached to the 2-position of the naphthalene ring. C acid is a white to pale yellow solid that is slightly soluble in water and soluble in organic solvents. It is used as a starting material in the synthesis of a variety of chemicals and pharmaceuticals.

 

How is c acid produced

There are several ways to synthesize 2-amino-4,8-naphthalenedisulfonic acid, depending on the starting materials and the desired yield and purity of the final product. Here is one example of a synthesis of 2-amino-4,8-naphthalenedisulfonic acid:

2-Naphthalenesulfonic acid is treated with a strong base such as sodium hydroxide to convert it to the sodium salt.

The sodium salt is then treated with a reducing agent such as sodium hydrosulfide to convert it to 2-amino-4,8-naphthalenedisulfonic acid.

The resulting mixture is cooled and filtered to remove any solid impurities, and the filtrate is concentrated under reduced pressure to give 2-amino-4,8-naphthalenedisulfonic acid as a white to pale yellow solid.

This is just one example of a synthesis of 2-amino-4,8-naphthalenedisulfonic acid, and there may be other methods that are used depending on the specific requirements and conditions of the synthesis.

 

What is c acid used for

2-Amino-4,8-naphthalenedisulfonic acid, also known as c acid, is a chemical intermediate that is used as a starting material in the synthesis of a variety of chemicals and pharmaceuticals. Some examples of compounds that can be synthesized from c acid include:

  • The data for the current month and recent history are fine-tuned over time.
  • We are continually improving our data collection and processing methods and data will be updated from time to time as we improve the accuracy
  • We are working hard to upgrade the algorithm before April 1, 2023 and a further fine-tune by July 1, 2023
  • This the index trend of the price of the product group in general and not a single specification in particular
  • The source of the data are exclusively public non-confidential sources
  • We combine public publications, import/export records, company announcements, and sources of ad-hoc public information.
  • The chart shows the price trend,  nearly always taken from many statistically-correlated sources 
  • The data is presented in US$. The UOM of measure is shown in the Index list table
  • We do our best to create an accurate representation of the trend
  • Although we believe the price trend to be accurate, we assume no responsibility or liability for any errors or omissions in the content of this site.
  • The information is provided on an “as is” basis with no guarantees of completeness, accuracy, usefulness, fitness for purpose or timeliness.
