Applications

3-Hydroxybutyric acid is used in enantioselective synthesis of D-(-)-3-hydroxybutyric acid by escherichia coli. It forms films of random copolymer with (R)-3-hydroxypentanoic acid, (R)-3-hydroxyhexanoic acid, 4-hydroxybutyric acid, 6-hydroxyhexanoic acid and (S,S)-lactide by the melt-crystallized method.
