Product Name: Adipic acid-Beta-Alanine
IUPAC Name: 3,3′-(adipoylbis(azanediyl))dipropionic acid,
Description: Adipic acid is the most important industrial dicarboxylic acid widely used for the production of nylon 66 and polyurethane. It is a nontoxic and biocompatible compound which has several applications in the food industry, e.g., as a flavorant, acidulating agent, and gelling aid. Adipic acid can be utilized for the preparation of different chitosan-based biomaterials, especially for biomedical applications, such as drug delivery systems, artificial skin, wound dressing, and tissue engineering, where nontoxicity is an essential aspect. Beta-alanine has been identified as the rate-limiting precursor to carnosine synthesis, and has been consistently shown to increase levels of carnosine in human skeletal muscle. Over the past ten years, beta-alanine has grown to become one of the most popular sports nutrition ingredients.
