Product details

Product features
Glycine (abbreviated Gly), also known as amino acetic acid, has the chemical formula C2H5NO2, CAS no. : 56-40-6.
The glycine in solid state is white monoclinic crystal system or hexagonal crystal system crystal or white crystalline powder, odorless, non-toxic;It dissolves easily in water.Boiling point: 233 & deg;C, melting point: 240 °C (dec) (lit), biochemical test and organic synthesis, the amino acid series is the most simple in structure, both acidic and basic functional groups in the molecule, can be ionized in the water, has a strong hydrophilic, but belong to nonpolar amino acid, soluble in polar solvent, and difficult to soluble in nonpolar solvents, and has high boiling point and melting point, through the regulation of acid and alkaline aqueous solution, can make the glycine presents different molecular forms.
Glycine is an important intermediate in fine chemical industry.Widely used in pesticide, medicine, food, feed and other fields.Especially since the advent of the global herbicide glycyrrhizin.The application of glycine in pesticide industry has been greatly enhanced. 
Practical benefits of glycine
Glycine is an important intermediate in fine chemical industry.Widely used in pesticide, medicine, food, feed and other fields.Especially since the advent of the global herbicide glycyrrhizin.The application of glycine in pesticide industry has been greatly enhanced.

  1. 1.Application in food industry

The food industry is one that USES a large amount of glycine.Glycine has the functions of inhibiting bacterial growth, chelating buffering and inhibiting oxidation, etc. It is designated for food additives, mainly used in food amino acid fortifiers, flavoring agents and nutritional supplements, food brewing, meat processing, and cooling beverage formulations.Because of its antioxidant properties, glycine can extend its shelf life by three to four times when used in cream, cheese and margarine.It can also be used alone as a sweet taste, can be used for candy and cookies, the prevention of high blood pressure is very good.Add 5% table salt.

  1. 2.Applied to the pharmaceutical industry

Glycine is human body essential amino acids, basically in all kinds of amino acid transfusion formula contains glycine, solvents gentle infusion of glycine can be used for medicine, at the same time it can synthesize a variety of drugs, such as hydrochloric acid to treat high blood pressure drugs leap split, medicinal of calcium carbonate inhibition of gastric ulcer, single glycine acetylsalicylic acid calcium, amine injection, blood, etc.

  1. 3.Application in feed industry

Glycine in feed additive, not only is the main nutritional supplements in the livestock and poultry feed ingredients, feed can also prevent the oxidation, extending freshness, feed cattle and sheep feed abroad that glycine, domestic breeding industry has not been widely used, in this area should be further development, the application of glycine are also found in other emerging animal canned pet feed glycine, add a surprisingly high amount of glycine, pet feed production is a labor-intensive industry, is very suitable for China's national conditions.

  1. 4.Applied to the daily chemical industry

In the surfactant industry, glycine can be used to synthesize cations and amphoteric surfactants. It can also be used in the production of amino acid hair colorants with good moisture control and dyeing properties.In addition, it is also used to prepare oil-water or water-oil solution with strong foaming force and antioxidant in pharmaceutical cosmetics, which has the effect of humidifying and thickening.

  1. 5.Application in pesticide industry

Glycine is the raw material of herbicide glyphosate and the important intermediate of plant growth regulator glyphosate.Glycine is added to phosphate and potassium fertilizer to promote the absorption of phosphorus and potassium.

  1. 6.Other applications

Glycine can also be used as an animal drug additive and as a PH regulator in electroplating solutions.In addition, the research and application of electroless plating are becoming more and more extensive.
