NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Itaconic acid is a white, crystalline, unsaturated dicarboxylic acid that often easily degrades into soil. It is one of the promising chemicals within the group of organic acids. Itaconic acid is stable at room temperature; however, due to the presence of two carboxylic groups, it effectively takes part in the co-polymerization reaction. Itaconic acid is mostly produced by the fungal fermentation of glucose syrup. Itaconic acid is mostly used in the form of derivatives in several end-user industries. For instance, poly itaconic acid, an important derivative of itaconic acid, is produced by the polymerization of itaconic acid monomers. A few other important derivatives include unsaturated ester, 2-methyl-1, 4-butanediol, and 3-methyltetrahydrofuran (3-methyl-THF). Poly itaconic acid is the largest derivative segment of the itaconic acid market. Itaconic acid is employed in several end-user industries. Some of its applications include synthetic latex, unsaturated polyester resins (UPR), superabsorbent polymers (SAP), detergents, and others.
