Synonym: 2,3-dihydroxysuccinic acid, tartaric acid,
Organic acid is for industrial purposes. Use in technical applications.
Synthetic tartaric acid DL is typically synthesized using hydrogen peroxide. For the most part, synthetic tartaric acid is used in technical applications, exemplified by its use as a complexing agent, acidity regulator or retarder in cement processing. In addition, tartaric acid is used in the manufacture or dyeing of textiles.

Tartaric acid DL, synthetic does not mean, by the way, that the tartaric acid is not of natural origin. Although it may be maleic anhydrite, a coal tar derivative. Nowadays, however, synthetic tartaric acid is becoming less common due to its limited range of uses and is gradually being replaced in formulations.
Store only in the original container in a cool, well-ventilated area. Keep container closed when not in use.
