  • Succinic anhydride, also called dihydro-2,5-furandione, is an organic compound with the molecular formula C4H4O3. It is the acid anhydride of succinic acid.
  • Succinic Anhydride is an important organic anhydride. It is a white, crystalline and flaky product and it is odourless.
  • N-succinyl-chitosan were prepared by ring opening reactions with succinic anhydride in dimethyl sulfoxide system.
  • Succinic anhydride or dihydro-2,5-furandione (SA) reacts rapidly with the amino groups of lysines and the amino groups of the N termini of proteins at pH 7 to 8, forming an amide bond by replacing the amino group with a carboxyl.
  • Fiber reacted to increasing levels of weight gain with succinic anhydride has been thermopressed, at different temperatures, to form cellulose reinforced thermoplastic composites.
  • Modification of the kenaf bast fibers using succinic (SA) anhydrides was performed using two procedures. They are solution reaction, solid state reaction.
  • Succinic Anhydride is mainly used in the manufacture of polymeric materials (alkyd and other special resins).
  • It is used in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, dyes, photographic chemicals, surface active agents, lubricant additives, organic flame retardant materials, esters, flavours and fragrances.
  • Its application include as a cross-linking agent in ion-exchange membranes, curing agent for epoxy resins and starch modifier in foods and feeds.
  • Succinic anhydride can also be used as a curative for epoxy resins or in the manufacture of polyester resins.
  • Acetic and succinic anhydride treatments increased density and decreased equilibrium moisture content (EMC); therefore, the boards treated with these anhydrides improved the physical and mechanical properties.
  • Fiber modified with succinic anhydride appeared to exhibit the greatest thermoplasticity.
  • Used for producing plasticization resin, engineering plastics and esters etc in chemical industry; also used for intermediate of medicament and pesticide etc; as well as chemical reagent, neutralizing agent and flavoring agent.
  • Succinic anhydride, a food additive, is also used in the manufacture of polymeric materials.
  • Kenaf fiber can be reacted with succinic anhydride to give high weight gains of esterification of the cell wall polymers either by solution or solid state chemistry.
