Green oxidation of bio-lactic acid with H2O2 into tartronic acid under UV irradiation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Tartronic acid (TA) is a high value-added chemical widely used as a pharmaceutical product and a preservative; however, its synthesis technology is complicated and high cost. In this study, aqueous solutions of lactic acid were photochemically converted into TA via green oxidation by using hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).
