Maleic acid is also known as cis-butenedioic acid. It is an organic compound with a dicarboxylic acid. One molecule of maleic acid contains two carboxyl groups. The chemical formula of maleic acid is HO2CCHCHCO2H. Fumaric acid is the trans-isomer of butenedioic acid, whereas maleic acid is the cis-isomer. Maleic acid can be used as a precursor to synthesize fumaric acid. Maleic acid has few applications due to its parent maleic anhydride compared to fumaric acid. Maleic acid is less stable and more soluble in water than fumaric acid.
Scientists at Creative Proteomics utilize a highly quantitative method with high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for the determination of Maleic acid levels in various samples, including Tissue, Plant, Bacterial, Cells and more. High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) using a differential refractive index detector (RID) for the determination of Maleic acid levels in a lot of biological samples.
Maleic acid can be used in food contact materials to migrate to food. Food additives containing maleic acid are used for food production usually. Malic acid is the substance, which gives the sour taste of the tart fruits and drinks. Malic acid is also can be used by dentist to help in filling cavities, or can be prescribed by doctor for some certain applications. Malic acid is also can be served as an active ingredient to add to many makeup and skin care products. When interacting with other drugs, malic acid may cause adverse effects, so it is necessary to seek advice from doctor before using malic acid as a kind of drug. Malic acid can be served as additive agent for many foods and candies to give them a more tart taste. Malic acid is necessary for fruity-tasting candies, confections and some sodas as a flavoring agent to give them a certain taste. Malic acid is also used to enhance flavors, or preserve certain flavors during the processing of lose some of their natural flavoring. A study published in the “Journal of Clinical Biochemistry and Nutrition” by a group of doctors in 2009 has shown that malic acid is helpful in lowering blood pressure. Malic acid has the potency to develop into blood pressure-lowering supplement even though more studies are necessary to figure out the diffuse results.
