What is Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C?

Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C is a white or slightly yellow crystal or powder, m.p. is 190℃-192℃, slightly acidic.

It is insoluble in ethyl ether, chloroform, and other organic solvents, slightly soluble in alcohol, and easily soluble in water.

Its aqueous solution mutates when exposed to air. In its solid state, it is stable in air.

What is Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C used for?


Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is an admixture of building materials, which is used in construction projects such as highways, high-rise buildings, Bridges, and culverts, and is an excellent water-reducing agent additive.

Vitamin C contains a large number of hydroxyl groups and strong polar functional groups, which provide flow and dispersion properties to cement particles through adsorption, dispersion, and wetting and reduce the friction resistance between cement particles and the free energy of cement particles and water interface, thereby increasing the workability of new concrete.

At the same time, the polycarboxylic acid is adsorbed on the surface of cement particles, and carboxylic acid ions will make cement particles with a negative charge, resulting in the dispersion of electrostatic repulsion between cement particles and cement particles, thus inhibiting the condensation tendency of cement slurry. Increase the contact area between cement particles and water so that the cement is fully hydrated.


It has the functions of keeping fruits and vegetables fresh, resisting Browning, improving protein properties, inhibiting fat oxidation, reducing nitrite content, acting as an SO2 supplement, protecting the stability of tea polyphenols, and improving the quality of black tea.

Analytical Chemistry

Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C is a reagent for the determination of iron, arsenic, antimony, iodine, bismuth, magnesium, calcium, tungsten, titanium, and phosphorus. It can also be used as a standard substance for the determination of acid anhydride. It can also be used as a reducing agent, masking agent, and chromatographic analysis reagent.

Agriculture, forestry, and animal husbandry

Chicken breeding: The appropriate use of vitamin C can promote the survival of chicks, can promote the growth of meat chicks, can improve the laying rate of laying hens, can improve the quality of egg shells, can enhance the immunity of chickens, can improve the ability of chickens to resist stress. 

Aquaculture: Vitamin C mainly promotes the synthesis of collagen to improve the taste and meat quality of aquatic animals. Studies have shown that collagen plays an important role in maintaining the muscle structure, flexibility, and swimming ability of fish. Adding vitamin C to feed can improve the immunity of aquatic animals and increase their survival rate. Vitamin C can reduce the secretion of glucocorticoids and avoid the induced immunosuppressive effect, thereby improving the anti-stress ability of aquatic animals.

Medical use

Indication: 1. When patients with scurvy, infectious diseases, purpura, and Keshan have cardiogenic shock. 2. Chronic iron poisoning. 3. Idiopathic methemoglobinemia. 4. Increased vitamin C requirements: patients receiving chronic hemodialysis, gastrointestinal diseases, AIDS, tuberculosis, cancer, ulcer disease, hyperthyroidism, fever, infection, trauma, burns, post-surgery, etc.; Patients receiving parenteral nutrition due to strict control or choice of diet, malnutrition, weight loss, and pregnant and lactating women; When barbiturates, tetracyclines, salicylic acids, or vitamin C are used as urinary acidifiers.

Pharmaceutical preparation: Vitamin C in medicine has vitamin C tablets, vitamin C injections, vitamin C granules, vitamin C effervescent tablets, vitamin C effervescent granules, compound vitamin C sodium chewable tablets several preparations.
