Citric Acid Mono dan Anhy
Citric Acid Mono dan Anhy
Citric acid is a weak organic acid found in the leaves and fruits of plants of the genus Citrus ( orange - jerukan ). This compound is a good preservative and natural, but used as a sour flavor enhancer in foods and soft drinks. In biochemistry, citric acid is known as an intermediate in the citric acid cycle that occurs in the mitochondria, which is important in the metabolism of living beings. It also can be used as an environmentally friendly cleaning agent and as an antioxidant.
Citric acid present in a variety of fruits and vegetables, but found in high concentrations, which may reach 8 % dry weight, the lemons and limes ( eg lemon and lime ).
The chemical formula of citric acid is C6H8O7 ( structure shown on the information table on the right). Acid structure is reflected in its IUPAC name, acid 2 - hydroxy - 1,2,3 - propanatrikarboksilat.

Calcium Stearate
Calcium Stearate
Calcium Stearate is a vegetable based product that is food grade, and vegetarian friendly. It can be used for an excipient, mold release agent, source of calcium, tableting agent. This product can come in powder and granular form, in either bags or supersacks. Calcium Stearate has a free fatty acid percent of 1.0 maximum, a moisture percent of 3.0 maximum, and a melting point of 148 – 160°C.
Calcium stearate is produced by heating stearic acid, a fatty acid, and calcium oxide:

2 C17H35COOH + CaO → (C17H35COO)2Ca + H2O

It is also the main component of soap scum, a white solid that forms when soap is mixed with hard water.Unlike soaps containing sodium and potassium, calcium stearate is insoluble in water and does not lather well.[citation needed] Commercially it is sold as a 50% dispersion in water or as a spray dried powder. As a food additive it is known by the generic E number E470.

Microcrystaline Wax
Microcrystaline Wax
Microcrystalline wax is often used in industries such as the tire and rubber, candles, adhesives, corrugated board, cosmetics, castings, and a host of others. Refineries may also utilize blending facilities to combine paraffin and microcrystalline waxes. This type of activity is prevalent especially for industries such as tire and rubber.
Microcrystalline waxes have considerable application in the custom making of jewelry and small sculptures. Different formulations produce waxes from those soft enough to be molded by hand to those hard enough to be carved with rotary tools. The melted wax can be cast to make multiple copies that are further carved with details. Jewelry suppliers sell wax molded into the basic forms of rings as well as details that can be heat welded together and tubes and sheets for cutting and building the wax models. Rings may be attached to a wax "tree" so many can be cast in one pouring.
