n-Butyric Acid, also known as Butanoic Acid, Butyric Acid has the molecular formula C4H8O2. It appears as a colorless liquid with an unpleasant and penetrating odor. It is a saturated short-chain fatty acid with a 4-Carbon backbone and is commonly found in esterified form in plant oils and animal fats. It is miscible with Water, Ether, Ethanol and is slightly soluble in Carbon Tetrachloride. Lab Alley’s Butyric Acid is highly pure and contains >99% Butyric Acid. Chemically pure or Laboratory reagents are two terms often used to describe Lab Grade chemicals. Lab Grade chemicals do not meet any accepted quality or purity requirements such as the ACS Grade, the USP Grade, and the FCC Grade, despite their acceptable purity. In the United States of America (USA), Lab Alley is selling its high-quality Butyric Acid, Lab Grade online at laballey.com.
