Succinic acid, also or , E 363, is a colorless, crystalline carbonic acid. Succinate one calls the salts and esters of the succinic acid. The term "Succinat" is derived from latin word succinum for amber.
Structural formula HOOC-CH2-CH2-COOH
Succinic acid is used for the production of coloring materials, pharmaceutical preparations as well as polyester and alkyd resins. As food additive it carries the designation E 363 (for example common salt replacement in taste amplifier).
In the CIT advice cycle with the dismantling of glucose the salt seems to the succinic acid as intermediate stage with the regeneration of the acceptor
She was discovered 1546 by Georgius Agricola by heating up amber.
The Succinat ion is a metabolic intermediate product of the Citratcyclus.
