About Lactic Acid 85% Solution, Reagent Grade

Lactic acid may exist either as a white solid in pure form, or a clear to yellowish liquid when dissolved in water. It can be produced via fermentation of carbohydrates, or synthesized from acetaldehyde. Reagent 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 Lactic Acid, Reagent Grade online at Due to its high purity Lactic Acid, Reagent Grade is highly recommended for labs, industrial and manufacturing applications.
