Product DescriptionGlycine (abbreviated Gly), also known as amino acetic acid, has the chemical formula C2H5NO2, CAS no. : 56-40-6.
The glycine in solid state is white monoclinic crystal system or hexagonal crystal system crystal or white crystalline powder,odorless, non-toxic;It dissolves easily in water.Boiling point: 233 & deg;C, melting point: 240 °C (dec) (lit), biochemical test and organic synthesis, the amino acid series is the most simple in structure, both acidic and basic functional groups in the molecule, can be ionized in the water, has a strong hydrophilic, but belong to nonpolar amino acid, soluble in polar solvent, and difficult to soluble in nonpolar solvents, and has high boiling point and melting point, through the regulation of acid and alkaline aqueous solution, can make the glycine presents different molecular forms.
Glycine is an important intermediate in fine chemical industry.Widely used in pesticide, medicine, food, feed and other fields.Especially since the advent of the global herbicide glycyrrhizin.The application of glycine in pesticide industry has been greatly enhanced.
