Disodium glutarate

Excluding Sales Tax

Disodium glutarate is dibasic sodium salt of glutaric acid. The glutarate moiety in disodium glutarate is a C5 chemical building block produced during the biological catabolism of several amino acids such as L-lysine, L-hydroxylysine, and L-tryptophan. Glutarate is an important biochemical metabolite in animals, plants, and microbes. Disodium glutarate is used in the synthesis and / or formulation of surfactants, plasticizers, lubricants, curing agents, pH regulators, crosslinking reagents, stabilizers, thickening agents, gellants, texturizers, mordants, and corrosion inhibitors. In other applications, disodium glutarate is built into organometallics, inks, dyes, paints, and coating formulations leading to preservatives, transistors, and capacitors. Overall, it plays a crucial role in enhancing the quality and shelf life of products across different sectors.
