    Propionic acid

    Propionic acid and its derivatives are used in the production of herbicides (propanol, dichlorprop), medicines (ibuprofen, fenobolin, etc.), fragrances (benzyl-, phenyl-, geranyl-, linalool - propionates), plastics (e.g., polyvinylbutyrate), solvents (propyl-, butyl-, pencilpoint, etc.), viniplastovaya and surfactants (glycol ethers). Propionic acid prevents the growth of mold and some bacteria. So most of the produced propionic acid is used as a preservative in food for human consumption, and in products for animals. In products for animals is applied directly propionic acid or its ammonium salt (propionate ammonium). In products for human consumption, especially in bread and other bakery products, propionic acid is used as sodium (propionate sodium) or calcium (calcium propionate), salt.
