Sugar alcohol is not only a substitute for functional foods in the food industry, but also a raw material for the pharmaceutical industry. It is also widely used in the chemical industry.
Xylitol has the characteristics of five hydroxyl groups and similar properties to glycerin, which can replace glycerin and is an important raw material for various industrial products such as light industry and chemical industry.In the paint and coating industry, it can replace glycerin and alkyd resin, saving a lot of glycerin and edible oil;In the plastics industry, it can be used as a plasticizer, an additive for PVC cables and a basic raw material for rigid foams;In the leather industry, it can be used as a leather tanning agent and fatliquor;In the defense industry, xylitol can be used not only as an emulsifier for liquid explosives, but also as a nitro explosive by denitrification.In addition, it can also be used in the production of paper, cigarette, toothpaste, rubber tube, etc.It can also be used to make petroleum demulsifiers, pesticide emulsifiers, chemical fiber auxiliaries, antistatic agents, antifreeze agents, etc.Xylitol is used in various industrial fields and is an important organic chemical raw material.
Xylose is a reducing sugar that can be hydrogenated to form xylitol in the presence of a catalyst.Therefore, it is used in large quantities as a raw material for xylitol.Glycosides and hydroxy acids are prepared by chemical reaction and can be used as glycerol and edible organic acids.
Maltitol can be used as an additive and a humectant for cigarettes, which can increase the water holding capacity of tobacco.Maltitol can also be used as a synthetic raw material for the production of surfactants, synthetic resins and the like.
Erythritol can be used as a polymer component and additive to produce polyether polyols, alkyd resins, polyesters, and the like.It can also be used as an intermediate in organic synthesis and as a raw material for the manufacture of paints, explosives and the like.
L-arabinose can be used in perfume synthesis, fine chemical industry, biochemical reagents, and the like.The reactive flavor of arabinose produces a soft, rich aroma that gives the end products and fragrances that use the fragrance closer to nature and fullness.In addition, L-arabinose can also be used as an anti-fading agent, producing L-arabitol, and the like.The latter is a widely used rare sugar alcohol, which is widely used in medicine, chemical and other industries.
