Specification: Trans-butenedioic acid has bacteriostatic and antiseptic function. It can be used as acidulant, acidity regulator, acidifier.
Properties: White odorless powder or, with speical sourness that is as strong as 1.5 times of citric acid. It is soluble in ethanol (5.76g/100g, 30° C), slightly soluble in water (0.63G/100ml, 25° C) and in ether, and very slightly soluble in chloroform. It has no hygroscopicity, and will sublime at 200° C. Boiling point: 290° C (decompose). It will turn to maleic anhydride at 230° C, and will generate DL-malic acid if boiled with water.
