Citric Acid, also known as 2-hydroxypropane-1,2,3-tricarboxylic acid, has the chemical formula C6H8O7 or CH2COOH-C(OH)COOH-CH2COOH. It appears as colorless, odorless crystals with an acid taste. It is very soluble in Water, Ethanol, and Ether at ambient conditions. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and fumes. Chemicals in the Reagent Grade category have high purity and are best suited for analytical purposes. They're useful in research investigations as they produce consistent, trustworthy, and repeatable findings. In the United States of America (USA), Lab Alley is selling its high-quality Citric Acid, Anhydrous, Reagent Grade online at laballey.com.
