What is soy lecithin? Lecithin is a food additive that comes from several sources – one of them being soy. It’s generally used as an emulsifier, or lubricant, when added to food, but also has uses as an antioxidant and flavor protector.
Soy lecithin is composed of choline, fatty acids, glycerol, glycolipids, phospholipids, phosphoric acid and triglycerides.
The diverse forms in which lecithin is available – fluid, powder and granules – make it even more suitable to use as per industry specific demands. With additional processing, fluid lecithin can also be hydrolysed, fractionated, hydroxylated and acetylated for very specific industry applications.
Soy Lecithin is made from fresh gums, during de-gumming of Soybean Oil obtained from Soybean seeds.
|Synonyms||Lecithin from Soybean|
|CAS no.||8002-43-5, 8030-76-0|
It is used in human food, pharmaceuticals, animal feed, paints, and other industrial applications.
|In food industry as an emulsifier, stabilizer, lubricate, release agent, antioxidant and dispersant.|
|In the pharmaceutical industry, it acts as a wetting agent, stabilizing agent and a choline enrichment carrier, helps in emulsification and encapsulation, and is a good dispersing agent. It can be used in manufacture of intravenous fat infusions and for therapeutic use.|
|In animal feed, it enriches fat and protein and improves pelletization.|
|In the paint industry, it forms protective coatings for surfaces with painting and printing ink, has antioxidant properties, helps as a rust inhibitor, is a color-intensifying agent, catalyst, conditioning aid modifier, and dispersing aid; it is a good stabilizing and suspending agent, emulsifier, and wetting agent, helps in maintaining uniform mixture of several pigments, helps in grinding of metal oxide pigments, is a spreading and mixing aid, prevents hard settling of pigments, eliminates foam in water-based paints, and helps in fast dispersion of latex-based paints.|
|Also, may be used as a release agent for plastics, an anti-sludge additive in motor lubricants, an anti-gumming agent in gasoline, and an emulsifier, spreading agent, and antioxidant in textile, rubber, and other industries.|

Pyrophosphoryl chloride is colourless to pale yellow liquid, reasonably easy to handle. It reacts violently with water & miscible with most organic solvents.
It is used in pharmaceutical and other organic synthesis, as laser materials and electronic components.
Benzilic acid ethyl ester is an oil organic liquid. Its reactivity is attributed to the presence of the hydroxyl group at alpha-position to the carboxylic acid group and hence it participates in various reactions leading to value-added intermediates and APIs.
Dibutyltin laurate is an organotin compound with oily appearance. The lauric acid ester is used in various industrial applications as catalyst.
Pyridine hydrobromide is a white to off-white hygroscopic crystalline solid with melting point/freezing point of 216 °C to 219 °C. It is miscible in water. It used in many chemical synthesis studies.
Chrysanthemic acid is a cyclic organic compound. The product occurs naturally in its ester form in pyrethrum flowers. It is also found as metabolite of pyrenthrins. The acid carries a sweet odor thereby enabling its uses in flavors and is used to synthesize agrochemicals as well.
Propionic Anhydride is a colorless liquid having a pungent odor and high boiling point. It is miscible with most organic solvents. It is soluble in both water and alcohol. It is a widely used reagent in organic synthesis as well as for producing specialty derivatives of cellulose.
