Excluding Sales Tax

Trisodium aconitate is a sodium salt of aconitic acid. Aconitic acid (propene-1,2,3-tricarboxylic acid) is a renewable biochemical found in beet root, barley, maize, sweet sorghum, molasses, and sugar cane. On a commercial scale, aconitic acid is sustainably sourced from sugarcane, molasses, and sweet sorghum syrups. Structurally, aconitic acid is an analog of citric acid, which can also act as a source of aconitic acid. In fact, aconitate is an important intermediate for the isomerization of citrate to isocitrate in the citric acid cycle. As a bio-derived chemical, trisodium aconitate finds many industrial uses including, but not limited to, production of hyperbranched ester polymers; detergent builder; cross-linking agent for starch; production of nanoparticles; latexes precursor; grafting agent; fermentation inhibitor; metal sequestering agent; proteomic biomarker, monomer for superabsorbent materials, etc.
