Adipic acid is a white crystalline solid. Adipic acid is insoluble in water. The primary hazard is the threat to the environment. Immediate steps should be taken to limit its spread to the environment.
Adipic acid is mainly used as raw material for nylon 66 and engineering plastics.
Secondly, it is used to produce various ester products, as plasticizers and high-grade lubricants.
In addition, adipic acid is also used as a raw material for polyurethane elastomers and as an acidifier for various foods and beverages, sometimes better than citric acid and tartaric acid.
Adipic acid is also the raw material of medicine, yeast purification, insecticides, adhesives, synthetic leather, synthetic dyes and spices.
