Applications

Malonic acid is acts as a building block in organic synthesis. It is also useful as a precursor for polyesters and alkyd resins, which is used in coating applications, thereby protecting against UV light, corrosion and oxidation. It acts as a cross linker in the coating industry and surgical adhesive. It finds application in the production of specialty chemicals, flavors and fragrances, polymer cross linkers and pharmaceuticals.

Notes

Incompatible with bases, oxidizing agents and reducing agents.
