L-(-)-Malic acid is used as Selective α-amino protecting reagent for amino acid derivatives. Versatile synthon for the preparation of chiral compounds including κ-opioid rece. It also acts as active ingredient in many sour or tart foods. It is used as synthesizing disincrustant and fluorescent whitening agent. It aids in the production of polyester and alcohol acid resins.
