Main Applications and Effects

Main applications

Pharmaceuticals Synthetic raw materials, supplements (strengtheners), raw materials for amino acids, agrochemicals, and veterinary drugs

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 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.
