Description

Ammonium benzoate, a white solid, is the ammonium salt of benzoic acid. A coarse, white powder, ammonium benzoate is used in the coatings industry as a cost-effective, amine-free flash rust inhibitor for ferrous substrates. Ammonium benzoate is also used as a preservative in certain adhesives and rubber latex and is commonly used as industrial preservative for paper wrappers, an agent for reducing curing time in vulcanization of rubber and an analytical reagent for various elements. In personal care products, ammonium benzoate is used as a preservative.

Sample Use Guides

In Vivo Use Guide
A thin layer of ointment or cream should be applied twice daily to all infected areas for at least 4 weeks.
Route of Administration: Oral/Parenteral
In Vitro Use Guide
At concentrations of benzoic acid up to 4 mM, fermentation was stimulated and only low levels of benzoate were accumulated. Near the MIC (10 mM), fermentation was inhibited, ATP levels declined, and benzoate was accumulated to relatively higher levels.
