Description

Description

Glyoxylic acid is used in Hopkins Cole reaction, which is used in the detection of tryptophan in proteins. It reacts with phenol to get 4-hydroxymandelic acid, which on further reaction with ammonia gives hydroxyphenylglycine, as a precursor to the drug amoxicillin. It is also used as a starting material for the preparation of 4-hydroxyphenylacetic acid, which is used to get atenolol. It is involved in the production of agrochemicals, aromas, cosmetic ingredient and pharmaceutical intermediate. It is also used in water purification and in the preservation of food. Further, it is employed as precursor in the synthesis of iron chelates. In addition to this, it serves as an intermediate of varnish material and dyes.

This Thermo Scientific Chemicals brand product was originally part of the Alfa Aesar product portfolio. Some documentation and label information may refer to the legacy brand. The original Alfa Aesar product / item code or SKU reference has not changed as a part of the brand transition to Thermo Scientific Chemicals.
