Ascorbic acid also known as Vitamin C, has the least stability among all vitamin, is a water-soluble vitamin, and very powerful antioxidant. Vitamin C has different roles in the body, such as stimulates collagen synthesis, protects folic acid, and improves disease immunity. It is widely found in nature, especially in fresh fruits and vegetables.

Crystallography

Ascorbic acid belongs to the space group P21 with four molecules in the unit cell there are two in the asymmetric unit, but they are related by a pseudo symmetry operation. V= 688.59 Å3, dcalc = 1.699 g.cm -3, M=176.13, Z=4.

Synthesis of Ascorbic Acid

L-Ascorbic acid is synthesized easily divided into three main categories.

connecting a piece of C1 and a piece of C5.

involves connecting a piece of C2 and a piece of C4.

involves converting a C6 chain to the correct oxidation state and stereochemical configuration.

Applications

C6H8O6 helps the human body to battle bacterial infections and also helps collagen synthesis the main protein in bones, skin, and fibrous tissue. It is also used for patients that suffer from scurvy, a low level of vitamin C in their bodies. Scurvy may cause symptoms such as muscle weakness, joint pain, tiredness, or tooth loss.

The main use of L-ascorbic acid and its salts is allowed as a food additive to struggle with food oxidation. It is allowed as an additive by the European Union (E300), the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Australia, and New Zealand.

In fluorescence microscopy and other fluorescence-based laboratory methods, this product is used as an antioxidant to enhance the fluorescent signals and light of the dye.

In the plastics industry, this material can speed up the formation of molecular chains and reduce waste in the production line. Plastic production methods that use this acid are more economical and better than traditional synthesis methods.

Also, this material is commonly used to clean decomposed metal stains, such as iron, from fiberglass pool surfaces.

Safety information

If you are in this category don’t take extreme doses of vitamin C over a long term time.

  • diabetics,
  • patients prone to recurrent renal calculi
  • those undergoing stool occult blood tests
  • those on sodium-restricted diets
  • anticoagulant therapy

Furthermore, the most common side effects of Ascorbic Acid include:

  • injection site soreness,
  • faintness,
  • dizziness

According to the MSDS paper, we should know something about precautions for safe handling and conditions for safe storage that mention below.

Provide good ventilation in the process area to prevent the formation of vapor and for safe storage, it is light sensitive. Keep container closed when not in use. also, incompatible products are strong bases and strong oxidizers, incompatible materials are sources of ignition and direct sunlight.
