#Naphthenic#acid (NAs)is the name for an unspecific mixture of several cyclopentyl and cyclohexyl carboxylic acids with molecular weight of 120 to well over 700 atomic mass units. The main fraction are carboxylic acids with a carbon backbone of 9 to 20 carbons. Salts of naphthenic acids, which are naphthenates, are widely used as hydrophobic sources of metal ions in diverse applications.
Global #Citric#Acid#Market is expected to grow at a significant CAGR of 4.4% by 2023, as the scope and its applications are rising enormously across the globe. Citric acid is also termed as anhydrous citric acid or citrate or 2-hydroxypropane-1,2,3-tricarboxylic acid, with a molecular formula C6H8O7. These are odorless, colorless & translucent crystals with an acid taste and are denser than water. Its molecular weight is 192.123 g/mol. It is an organic acid compound found in citrus fruits and plays important role in metabolism to create energy.
