Physicochemical Properties Of Betaine
Mar 16, 2018

(A), the chemical structure of betaine Betaine is a kind of quaternary ammonium alkaloids, also known as glycine betaine, trimethyl glycine, the chemical name of NNN-trimethylglycine inner salt, molecular formula C5H11NO2, molecular weight 117.15, Its chemical structure and amino acids, choline similar

(B) of the physical and chemical properties of betaine Pure natural betaine is a brown liquid crystalline powder, high temperature, the temperature of 293 ° C; synthetic pure betaine is white or light yellow crystalline powder, the melting point of 301 ° C to 305 ° C; Strong water absorption, deliquescence and release of trimethylamine; Easily soluble in water (160g / 100g water), soluble in methanol, slightly soluble in ethanol, insoluble in chloroform or ether.

(C) the safety of betaine Betaine itself is the metabolism of animal intermediates, after a large number of experiments show that betaine and its salts non-toxic, harmless and pollution-free, the mouse LD50 in 11,000m9 / kg, no teratogenicity to animals, carcinogenic, mutagenic effects, is recognized as a safe substance.
