Intro to Ammonium propionate:
Ammonium propionate can be Used as an antiseptic and antifungal agent. It produces free propionic acid under acidic conditions and has antibacterial properties. It has a special effect on preventing the production of aflatoxin, but it is almost ineffective on yeast. Good effect on various molds and gram-negative bacilli. The lower the pH, the better the anti-corrosion effect.
Colorless column-shaped crystal. Molecular weight91.109,Melting point:45°C,Relative density:1.108. It is cold water soluble as well as alcohol and acetone. With strong hygroscopicity,Deliquesce in moisture. It can be used as anticorrosive, fungicide . Under acid condition, propionate ammoniumit has antifungal function. Under low PH value, the effect is better.It has low corrosive, and low volatility, stored under 35°C, in cool, sealed place and avoid of sunlight and water.
Ammonium propionate is yellow or light yellow lumpy granular crystals with a slightly pungent odor. It is miscible and soluble in ethanol, chloroform and ether. It is low-toxic and corrosive. It can deliquescence in the air.
Molar Mass:91.11 g/mol
Solubility: Zinc propionate is miscible and soluble in ethanol, chloroform and ether. It is low-toxic and corrosive..
Use of Ammonium propionate
 Used as an antiseptic and antifungal agent. It produces free propionic acid under acidic conditions, which has antibacterial effect. The lower the pH, the better the anti-corrosion effect.
 Ammonium propionate is less corrosive and has good anti-mildew and anti-caking effects for grains.
 The feed and grain preservatives in the United States mainly use ammonium propionate, and the compound of propionic acid and ammonium propionate can exert the best anti-mildew and bactericidal effects in an acidic environment.
