Information on Diammonium Citrate
Diammonium Citrate is Inorganic compound. Diammonium Citrate is a White crystalline powder with a slight Ammonia odour. It has a melting point of 185oC. It has a water solubility of 100 gm / 100 gm of water. The product should be stored in tightly closed container away from the source of heat.
Synthesis / Manufacturing Process of Diammonium Citrate
The main raw material of Diammonium Citrate is Citric Acid. Citric Acid is available in two forms i.e. Anhydrous & Monohydrate. Citric Acid is produced by fermentation process in which a carbohydrate source is utilized such as corn based starch and sugar beet molasses. Fermentation yields a crude purity product which requires further refining. One refining technique utilities a precipitation process, this process first uses lime to produce calcium citrate solids, this is then treated with sulphuric acid which produces a partially purified soluble citric acid and calcium sulphate as a by-product. Another technique used is solvent extraction. These processes produce streams which require demineralization by ion exchange.
Diammonium Citrate is prepared by treating Citric acid with Ammonium Bicarbonate.
