1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- About Muconic Acid Muconic acid is a dicarboxylic acid; it is a chemical compound that contains two carboxylic functional groups and is denoted in organic chemistry as -COOH.
Carboxylic functional groups were more abundant in the Ctr-EU treatment than the Ctr-PI treatment.
According to previous reports by Smalley and coworkers (19), (20), the carboxylic functional groups begin to disappear near 350[degrees]C.
