About Mucic Acid
Mucic acid is a trivial name of galactaric acid. If both terminal groups of an aldose are oxidized to carboxylic acids, the product is called an aldaric acid. Aldonic acid is a carboxylic acid resulting from oxidation of only one aldehyde group in aldose. The suffix '-aric' refers to dicarboxylic sugar acid (where '-onic' is for a carboxylic sugar acid, such as ribonic acid derived from D-(-) ribose). Galactaric acid is the dicarboxylic sugar acid resulting from oxidation of glactose with dilute nitric acid. Glucaric acid is aldaric acid resulting from oxidation of glucose is achiral. Mucic acid is a white crystalline melting at 230 C; practically insoluble in (cold) water and alcohol. Chemically it is 2, 3, 4, 5-tetrahydroxyhexanedioic acid. It is converted to furoic acid, pyranone and thiophene molecules in nature. It produces its antioxidative and heavy metal chelation activities, and is applicable in cosmetics and skin care products for anti-aging, acne treatment and sun light protection like alpha-hydroxy acids.
