Phthalic acid is an aromatic dicarboxylic acid, with formula C6H4(COOH)2. Phthalic acid is used mainly in the form of the anhydride to produce other chemicals such as dyes, perfumes, saccharin, phthalates and many other useful products.
An intermediate in chemistry is a short-lived, high-energy, highly reactive molecule. When generated in a chemical reaction, it will quickly convert into a more stable molecule. Only in exceptional cases can these compounds be isolated and stored. When their existence is indicated, intermediates can help explain how a chemical reaction takes place. An intermediate may be an unstable molecule or a highly stable molecule. An intermediate differs from a transition state in that the intermediate has a discrete lifetime while a transition state lasts for just one bond vibration cycle. Examples of organic intermediates include caustic soda flakes and boric acid. Browse through this category for various organic intermediates available in Zambian stores.
