L-(+)-Tartaric acid is widely utilized in pharmaceutical industries. It is used in soft drinks, confectionaries, food products, gelatin desserts and as a buffering agent. It forms a compound, TiCl2(O-i-Pr)2 with Diels-Alder catalyst and acta as a chelate agent in metal industries. Owing to its efficient chelating property towards metal ions, it is used in farming and metal industries for complexing micronutrients and for cleaning metal surfaces, respectively.
Resolving agent for chiral bases. For improved resolution technique using two immiscible solvents and half equivalent of resolving agent, claimed to give higher optical purities and faster resolutions than conventional methods, see: Tetrahedron, 41, 2465 (1985).
In combination with NaBH 4, induces asymmetric reduction of functionalized ketones with ee figures approaching those achieved with more expensive reagents: J. Chem. Soc. Perkin 1, 1826 (1990).
Preferred acid catalyst, in combination with MgSO 4, for acetalization of unsaturated aldehydes with ethylene glycol, giving less double bond isomerization than stronger acids including tosic and succinic: J. Org. Chem., 60, 2931 (1995)."
