Lactic acid is an important organic acid, and its yield and consumption are second only to the second organic acid of citric acid. It is reported that the consumption of lactic acid accounts for about 15% of the total consumption of organic acids. In recent years, due to the expansion of L-lactic acid in biodegradable plastics, the demand will increase at a relatively large rate. It is predicted that it may catch up or exceed citric acid after several years. Lactic acid is widely found in nature, and lactic acid is found in living organisms. Lactic acid, also known as 2-hydroxypropionic acid, α-hydroxypropionic acid, has an asymmetric carbon atom in its molecular structure, forming two optical isomers, d-body, l-body and racemic dl-body, totaling 3 An optical isomer. In 1780 Scheele got this product in sour milk, hence the name lactic acid. There are right-handed and racemic forms in human and animal meat tissues, while left-handed bodies are normal metabolites of mammals. It is also naturally found in fruits such as poppies, apples, and tomato juice. Commercially available products, whether produced by fermentation or synthetic methods, are racemic forms.





Due to the presence of hydroxyl groups and carboxyl groups in the molecule, the product has the functions of these two functional groups, forming a carboxylic acid ester with an acid anhydride, forming a lactate with an alcohol, and forming a salt with sodium, calcium, ferrous iron or the like; Hydroxyl groups and carboxyl groups, therefore, self-esterification can occur to form linear polyesters, and even cyclic compounds can be formed, ie, cyclic dimer lactide [2]. When oxidized under slow conditions, this product can produce pyruvic acid. When heated to above 250 °C, it will be broken down to form acetaldehyde, which will release carbon dioxide and water. Reaction with ammonia or an amine produces lactic acid amide. In addition to the self-esterification of the hydroxyl and carboxyl groups of the product, the hydroxyl group and the carboxyl group may also participate in the reaction, for example, by reacting with an aldehyde or a ketone to form a cyclic acetal. In the pharmaceutical use of sodium lactate to prevent acidosis, lactate, calcium lactate, etc. are raw materials for the pharmaceutical industry, ethyl lactate is a fragrance, butyl lactate is a good auxiliaries for lacquers, and an important raw material for plasticizers and improvers in the plastics industry; Used as a rust remover in the electroplating industry.
