Information @ a Glance

  • Itaconic acid, or methylenesuccinic acid, is an organic compound that is one of the three acids obtained by the distillation of citric acid.
  • Itaconic acid is a white crystalline powder that is soluble in water, ethanol and acetone.
  • The name itaconic was devised as an anagram of aconitic.
  • Itaconic acid (C5H6O4 ) is an unsaturated dicarboxylic organic acid.
  • The other two acids formed from the distillation of citric acid are citraconic and mesaconic acids.
  • The terpolymer of itaconic acid, acrylamide and 2-acrylamido-2-methyl-1-propane sulfonic acid was synthesized through the free-radical polymerization.
  • Hydrogels with varying IA content were prepared from the ternary systems Nvinyl 2-pyrrolidone/itaconic acid/water by irradiating with gamma-rays in the presence of a chemical cross-linker,ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (EGDMA) at ambient temperature.
  • The capacity of those gels to adsorb bovine serum albumin (BSA) was investigated by using gels with varying compositions of maleic acid and itaconic acid moieties.
  • Itaconic acid is produced by Aspergillus terreus from filtered Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) which is an added supplement.
  • Itaconic acid is produced on an industrial scale by the cultivation of Aspergillus terreus or A. itaconicus using sugar molasses or glucose.
  • A substantial accumulation of itaconic acid can only be obtained under acid condition.
  • The results indicate that a low pH is necessary for the formation of the enzyme system producing itaconic acid.
    Itaconic acid-producing ability of non-proliferating mycelia.
  • Itaconic acid was determined as a function of time both in the presence and in the absence of glucose.
