Second, electron-donating substituents increase the nucleophilicities of carboxylic acids in the glutaric acid, whereas electron-withdrawing groups decrease the nucleophilicities of carboxylic acids.
Various zinc dicarboxylate catalysts were synthesized from the reaction of zinc oxide with ten different glutaric acid derivatives and diglycolic acid.
Zinc oxide is insoluble in solvents, such as benzene, ethanol and toluene, so that zinc dicarboxylate catalysts have been prepared via its slurried reactions with glutaric acid derivatives and diglycolic acid.
The results indicate that all the side group substituents considered reduce the reactivity of glutaric acid to zinc oxide, giving relatively low reaction yields.
Unfortunately, referring to MADD as GA-II can be misleading because glutaric acid, although sometimes increased in urine organic acid profiles of MADD patients, is often not increased in their blood acylcarnitine profiles.
Although not registered as an active agent, glutaric acid exhibits virucidal activity.
