Azelaic acid

Azelaic acid (nonanedioic acid) is a dicarboxylic acid occurring as a white crystalline powder, available in varying degrees of purity depending on the final application.

The innovative production process makes it possible to obtain azelaic acid with very high purity and low monocarboxylic content. These characteristics are fundamental for its use as an intermediate in polymerization processes, typically as an alternative to sebacic and adipic acids.
