The name of propanoic acid is from the Greek words protos, meaning "first", the pion, meaning "fat". Propionic acid a carboxylic acid naturally occurring and its chemical formula is CH3CH2COOH. Propanoic acid is a clear liquid with a pungent and unpleasant smell. The salts and esters of propionic acid as well as the anion CH3CH2COO− are known as propionates or propanoates. Johann Gottlieb found propanoic acid from the degradation products of sugar in 1844 for the first time. Other chemists synthesizedpropionic acid by various different ways in the same time over the next few years; however, these chemists didn't realize the substance produced by them is same. The French chemist named Jean-Baptiste Dumas discovered all the acids to be the same compound and named as propionic acid according the Greek words in 1847.
Scientists at Creative Proteomics utilize a highly quantitative method with high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for the determination of Propanoic 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 Propanoic acid levels in a lot of biological samples.
Most propionic acid produced can be used as a preservative for both animal feed and food for human consumption because propionic acid can inhibit the growth of mold and some bacteria t the levels between 0.1% and 1% by weight. Propionic acid is also used as ammonium salt of animal feed. The added antibiotic Monensin to cattle feed can decrease the dioxidation of carbon and the feed conversion. This application consume for about half of the world production of propionic acid. Propionic acid is also used an intermediate to produce other chemicals, particularly polymers. The metabolism of propionic acid is the first step in the metabolism of carboxylic acids usually because the conversion to propionyl coenzyme A from propionic acid. Propionibacteria, which is the host of several species of bacteria in the human skin, has the ability to produce propionic acid. Propionibacterium acnes are the most famous stain to produce propionic acid. It is one of the principal causes of acne and lives mainly in the sebaceous glands of the skin.
