NOTES

This carboxylic acid is vital to industry.  It is used heavily in the production of textiles, particularly nylon.  


The production of nylon comes from a reaction with hexamethylene diamine, also supplied by Parchem.


Adipic acid can also be found in the production of foods as a flavoring agent to add tartness.


It is an emulsifier for Drilling Muds and Fluids as well.  It maintains the viscosity of the drilling mud and prevents fluid loss.
