Excluding Sales Tax

Sodium acetoacetate (CH3COCH2CO2Na) is a versatile keto-acid salt of sodium produced by the body as an energy metabolite during fasting or diabetes episodes. Acetoacetate is a signaling moiety measured in the urine of people suffering from diabetes and/or in dairy cows to test for ketoacidosis and for monitoring individuals on low-carb diets. In synthetic chemistry, sodium acetoacetate can undergo several chemical reactions, including hydrolysis, decarboxylation, and condensation reactions, which expand its potential applications. Other applications of sodium acetoacetate include: biofilm inhibition, antioxidation, dyes precursor, precursor for dihydropyrimidinones, precursor for beta-hydroxybutyrate, etc.
