Benzoic Acid IP

Benzoic acid is a colorless crystalline solid and a simple aromatic carboxylic acid. It occurs naturally in many plants and serves as an intermediate in the biosynthesis of many secondary metabolites.


Benzoic acid and its salts are used as food preservative as it inhibits the growth of mold, yeast and some bacteria. Acidic food and beverages are preserved with benzoic acid and benzoates. Benzoic acid is used to make a large number of important chemicals such as Benzoyl chloride, benzyl benzoate and Phenol.
