Glucaric Acid leaf-icon Glucuronic Acid

High-Purity Chemicals

Kalion produces very high-purity chemicals that use the power of nature. Companies are using our high-purity glucaric acid to discover the full power of this unique chemical. Kalion is also able to leverage the high purity to provide glucaric acid in a wider range of forms to maximize its benefits. We also provide high-purity versions of a closely related molecule called glucuronic acid.

Industrial Chemicals

Glucaric acid is a powerful corrosion inhibitor and can be used in a wide variety of applications where water contacts metal surfaces. Formulators have found value in using glucaric acid in diverse products from household cleaning to concrete admixtures to cooling tower treatment programs.

Of course, for many years researchers have considered glucaric acid as a substitute for phosphates and chelating agents in detergents and waste treatment applications. Using high-purity glucaric acid allows you to balance your cost-performance equation or meet your cost-in-use requirements.

Glucaric acid is a powerful chemical. Its full power is best demonstrated in application when you use the highest purity possible. First coming to prominence in the DOE Top Valued Added Chemicals from Biomass Report, with our high-purity glucaric acid the full value as a novel compound is now emerging.

Research at North Carolina State has revealed that it can be powerful polymer additive for materials.

Glucaric acid can double, triple or even increase by an order of magnitude certain mechanical properties for a given polymeric resin. If you use polyvinyl alchohol (PVOH), you will see some of these exceptional improvements in tensile strength, modulus or toughness.

Pharmaceutical & Nutraceutical Chemicals

Glucaric acid also known as saccharic acid is a counterion necessary in the production of Adderall® and its generic equivalents, a drug for ADHD. Glucaric acid is also used aas a nutraceutical where scientific studies have shown its ability to help remove toxins from the body.

Glucuronolactone, a form of glucuronic acid, is commonly found in a wide variety of energy drinks.

Popular forms of these chemicals are: Glucuronolactone, Glucuronic acid, Calcium D-Glucarate
