Lactic Acid Micro Pellets MUPS
Lactic acid, also known as milk acid, is a chemical compound that plays a role in various biochemical processes and was first isolated in 1780 by the Swedish chemist Carl Wilhelm Scheele.
Lactic acid is a carboxylic acid with the chemical formula C3H6O3.
It has a hydroxyl group adjacent to the carboxyl group, making it an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA).
In solution, it can lose a proton from the acidic group, producing the lactate ion (specifically an anion due to being negatively charged with an extra electron) CH3CH(OH)COOâˆ’.
Compared to acetic acid, its pKa is 1 unit smaller, meaning lactic acid looses its proton ten times as easy as acetic acid does.
This higher acidity is the cancequence of the intramolacular hydrogen bridge between the Î±-hydroxyl and the carboxylate group, making the latter less capable of keeping its proton tight.
