Methyl Pyruvate is produced by the esterification of Pyruvic Acid, to be mixed with ethanol and ether at a desired ratio. With its excellent reactivity, it easily reacts to nitrogen compounds, aldehyde, halide, phosphorus chemicals, etc. Therefore, it is used as a material for many kinds of chemicals.

Pyruvic Acid is involved in biochemical synthesis and metabolic processes of carbohydrates, lipids, and Amino Acids in the body.
Pyruvic Acid is highly reactive and also functions as an important intermediate in fine chemicals such as substrate for the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, agricultural chemicals, etc.
Sodium Pyruvate can also be used for infusions as glycolysis is bypassed when used to provide energy to cells.
Since we first began manufacturing, Musashino Chemical Laboratory, Ltd. has established technologies to manufacture Pyruvic Acid of high purity that satisfies product assurance standards as part of our efforts to continue providing a stable supply of the product.
