Citric Acid Anhydrous Structure

It has no odour and a sour taste, and it appears as a white crystalline solid. Its crystal structure is monoclinic. Carl Wilhelm Scheele, a scientist, discovered this organic acid for the first time in 1784. Because it resembles table salt, it is offered in the market as sour salt.

Citric Acid Anhydrous Uses

Food Industries
  • Citric acid can be used as an emulsifying ingredient in ice cream to keep fats from separating, to avoid sucrose crystallisation, or in recipes in place of fresh lemon juice.
  • Citric acid is combined with sodium bicarbonate in a variety of effervescent formulations for ingesting (e.g., powders and pills) as well as personal care (e.g., bath salts, bath bombs, and cleaning of grease).
  • Citricacid is also commonly found in cleaning goods as well as sodas or fizzy drinks.
Cleaning and chelating agent
  • Citric acid is a good metal chelating agent. It is employed in the removal of lime scale from boilers and evaporators.
  • It has the ability to soften water, making it helpful in soaps and laundry detergents. By chelating the metals in hard water, these cleansers can form foam and function more effectively without the need for water softening.
  • Some bathroom and kitchen cleaning products contain citric acid as an active component. A solution containing 6% citric acid will remove hard water stains from glass without scrubbing.
  • It is used in industry to remove rust from steel. Citric acid in shampoo can be used to remove wax and colouring from the hair.
Cosmetics and pharmaceuticals
  • Citric acid is widely used to adjust the pH of creams and gels of all kinds.
  • In this capacity, it is classified as a processing aid in most jurisdictions and thus does not need to be listed on ingredient lists.
  • Citric acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that is used in chemical peels as an active ingredient.
Dyeing
  • Citric acid can be used to balance the pH of a typically basic colour in food colouring.
  • It is used as an unscented substitute for white vinegar in home dyeing using acid colours.
Photography
  • As part of the developing process for photographic film, citric acid can be employed as a lower-odor stop bath.
  • Because photographic developers are alkaline, a moderate acid is employed to swiftly neutralise and cease their action; nevertheless, acetic acid, which is often used, creates a noticeable vinegar stench in the darkroom.
Make solid materials out of small molecules.
  • The Citrate-gel technique is a materials science procedure that is related to the sol-gel method, which is a method for generating solid materials from tiny molecules.
