 Molecular weight: 192.14.

 Physical and chemical properties
 Appearance: white crystalline powder, odorless.
 Melting point (℃): 153.
 Boiling point (℃): (decomposition).
 Relative density (water = 1): 1.6650.
 Flash point (℃): 100.
 Ignition temperature (℃): 1010 (powder).
 Explosion limit% (V / V): 8.0 (65 ℃).
 Solubility: soluble in water, ethanol, ethyl ether, insoluble in benzene, slightly soluble in chloroform.

 The main purpose
 Main purposes: for spices or as acidifier beverages, food and medicine as a multivalent chelator, is also a chemical intermediate.
