The Market of Succinic Acid in China

Succinic acid is colorless crystals, soluble in water, slightly soluble in ethanol, ether and acetone. In industry, succinic acid often get from catalytic reduction of butylene acid, succinic acid also can be made of butadiene nitrile hydrolysis preparation. In the laboratory, succinic acid can be used of two molecules of diethyl malonate sodium react with iodine, which in turn made water decarboxylation.
The important usage of succinic acid is the preparation of succinic five-membered heterocyclic compounds, for example, succinic acid dehydration heat rapidly, forms the succinic anhydride, it is the furan ring compounds. Succinic anhydride is manufacturing drugs, dyes and raw material of alkyd resin. Succinic imide based on hydrogen can be replaced by bromine, generate N - butyl bromide generation diimide, it is organic synthesis of bromide reagent and mild oxidant. in medicine ,Succinic acid has antispasmodic, expectorant and diuretic effect. Succinic acid diethyl ester is one of the important intermediates in organic synthesis. Succinic acid dibutyl, dioctyl ester plasticizer is plastic. Diallyl succinic acid ester with 1, 3 - butadiene copolymer, can make synthetic rubber.

Today, China's succinic acid production account for 25-30% of the world total, with the total capacity and output of 15550 tons and 8650 tons. In the first quarter of 2010, there are 12 main active production of succinic acid in China. From 2009-2012 Succinic acid industries have developed stable. However, in 2008, the domestic market of succinic acid, due to the impact of the financial crisis. The production of succinic acid is China's national conditions? What causes this situation?
At present, there are two main ways to produce succinic acid chemical pathways and biological pathways. China chemical approach is a mature, biological approach is still in research stage. Given the limited gas reserve in the world, biological pathway is one of the promising futures. Last years, foreign companies began to industrial fermentation production of succinic acid. What is the status quo of Chinese biological succinic acid production? What will affect the future development of domestic biological succinic acid?
Succinic acid is widely used in chemical, food, medicine and agricultural industries. Succinic acid potential alternative to what is? In addition to the above mentioned aspects, are there any other changes can be seen that, from 2005 to 2010 in the first quarter? What will happen in next succinic acid industry in China? Looking forward that china has a better market of succinic acid!
