Structural formula


Pyruvic acid is an organic compound, formerly known as coke of sour grapes (Germany Brenztr-aubensure), is involved in one of the intermediate product of the whole organism basic metabolism. Pyruvic Acid can achieve the mutual conversion of sugar, fat and amino acids through the acetyl-CoA and tricarboxylic acid cycle, therefore, it plays an important role in the hub between the three major metabolic metabolism.

Pyruvic Acid is extremely unstable, easily oxidized, weak oxidant Fe and H2O2 can oxidize pyruvate into acetic acid and release carbon dioxide. Pyruvic Acid is an intermediate product in the process of carbohydrate metabolism in organic bodies. It is also a transit point for the metabolism of protein and lipid. It is a colorless, irritating odor liquid under natural conditions with a boiling point of 165 ° C (decomposition) and soluble in water. Pyruvic Acid not only has the typical properties of hydroxy acids and ketones, but also has a-keto acid characteristics. It is the most simple a-keto acid (belonging to the hydroxy acid).


In addition, it also can be used as anti-TB drugs, isoniazid calcium pyruvate, the synthesis of hormone, the raw materials of insect repellent (Pyrunium Pamote); also used for pesticide raw materials. Using pyruvate, indole and ammonia as raw materials, biochemical reactions, can produce tryptophan.
