- a carboxylic acid used in the manufacture of nylon
Alternative definition of the noun adipic acid
- [organic compound] A white crystalline di-carboxylic acid, C4H8(COOH)2; it has many industrial applications; when condensed with hexamethylene diamine it produces nylon.
Adipic acid is the organic compound with the formula₄₂. From an industrial perspective, it is the most important dicarboxylic acid: About 2.5 billion kilograms of this white crystalline powder are produced annually, mainly as a precursor for the production of nylon. Adipic acid otherwise rarely occurs in nature.
- also known as Adilactetten, Acifloctin, Acinetten, Adipinic acid, Hexanedioic acid, Adipate, Hexanedioate, Adipinate, Kyselina adipova, Molten adipic acid, Molten adipate
