KEY Words: Thioglycollic Acid, Mercaptoacetic Acid

Description of Thioglycollic Acid, Mercaptoacetic Acid:

Thioglycollic Acid, also known as Mercaptoacetic Acid. It contains both a thiol and carboxylic acid functional groups. Thioglycollic Acid is a colorless liquid with a strongly unpleasant odor. It is miscible with polar organic solvents.

Thioglycollic Acid is colorless or slight yellow clarity liquid, with a physical properties as below:

a melting point -16.5°C, boiling point 123 °C,(3.866KPa), opposite density (d420) 1.2-1.32, refractive index 1.5030, well mixed with water, alcohol and aether, with highly causticity.

Thioglycollic Acid is widely used in cosmetics, pharmaceutical, rubber, pesticide, detergent and personal care industries. Mercaptoacetic Acid is an important intermediate or organic chemical material in the above related product manufacture process.

Thioglycollic Acid, Mercaptoacetic Acid Usage and applications:

Thioglycolate acid is a very good activator and catalyst for epoxy resin and bisphenol A production. Mercaptoacetic Acid is also the the main material of cosmetics such as cold wave lotion and depilatory. Thioglycolate acid can also be used as restraining agent for copper sulfide, chemical mineral processing reagent, acid  reagent. Mercaptoacetic Acid may also wok as an important organic reagent for metallic ion such as iron, molybdenum, silver and tin, etc.

Daily Chemical Product Making Area:

Thioglycolate acid is used for manufacturing cold essence and the main raw material of hair removal agent.

In the petroleum chemical industry and railway departments, Thioglycolate acid is used in cleaning equipment and track; The deep processing of products can be made of thioglycolic acid

---------------------

Thioglycollic Acid, Mercaptoacetic Acid (TGA) was first developed in the early 1940s as an active material for cold wave permanents. Now, Thioglycollic Acid, Mercaptoacetic Acid (TGA) and its salts are widely utilized in cosmetic productions and commodities for hair perms, straighteners and depilatories.

 

Another major use for Thioglycollic Acid, Mercaptoacetic Acid (TGA) in its ester form is as a crucial raw material in the production process of organotin heat-stabilizers for PVC. These esters could be utilzied as chain transfer agents in solvent based polymerizations, too.

 

Other usages are also discovered in the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, leather processing area and industries. Thioglycollic Acid, Mercaptoacetic Acid (TGA) may be used as a water-soluble chain transfer agent for certain acrylic polymers, too. The anti-corrosive properties of Thioglycollic Acid, Mercaptoacetic Acid (TGA) or its salts are very useful in the oil field sector in down-hole applications and as cleaning agents.

 

Thioglycollic Acid, Mercaptoacetic Acid (TGA) esters:

The esters like 2-Ethylhexyl Thioglycolate (-mercaptoacetate) and Iso-Octyl Thioglycolate (-mercaptoacetate), also called IOTG  react like regular mercaptans and show long term stability. Both are important intermediates in the production procedures of tin heat-stabilizers for PVC.

 

Thioglycollic Acid, Mercaptoacetic Acid (TGA) Salts:

Its salts such as Ammonium Thioglycolate or Monoethanolamine Thioglycolate are widely seen in cosmetics for hair perms and straigtheners. Calcium Thioglycolate and Potassium Thioglycolate are used in depilatories.

 

Properties:

With its unique reducing properties make Thioglycollic Acid, Mercaptoacetic Acid (TGA) an ideal choice for a lot of chemical reactions including addition, elimination, or cyclization reactions. The thiol group (-SH) in Thioglycollic Acid, Mercaptoacetic Acid (TGA) will react in the presence of bases, acids, ketone groups or organic halogens. In the presence of alcohols or amines, the carboxylic group of Thioglycollic Acid, Mercaptoacetic Acid (TGA) will react preferentially.
