Handling and Storage :Ascorbic Acid Plain

Because vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, excesses in the diet are not absorbed and excesses in the blood are rapidly excreted in the urine, it has a remarkably low acute toxicity. More than two to three grammes might induce indigestion, especially if consumed on an empty stomach.

Ascorbic Acid Plain Structure

Ascorbic acid's physical and chemical characteristics are determined by its chemical structure. It is a weak, water-soluble, unstable organic acid that oxidises or degrades readily under light, aerobic conditions (oxygen), high temperatures, alkali, humidity, copper, and heavy metals. Ascorbic acid is commonly found as a white or slightly yellowish crystalline powder.

  • Pharmaceutical Industry:
  • Intermediate in Drug Synthesis: Ascorbic acid can be a starting material or intermediate in the synthesis of various pharmaceutical drugs.
  • Chemical Industry:
  • Reductant: Due to its readily available electrons, ascorbic acid acts as a reducing agent in some chemical reactions.
  • Metal Chelation: It can form complexes with certain metal ions, finding applications in processes like metal plating or wastewater treatment.
  • Cosmetics Industry:
  • Antioxidant Properties: Similar to its role in food, ascorbic acid can act as an antioxidant in cosmetics, potentially helping to delay the signs of aging.
  • Other Potential Applications:
  • Water Treatment: Ascorbic acid can be used in some water treatment processes to remove chlorine or chloramines.
