What is CH3C?
Acetaldehyde, also called Eth, is a chemical compound called Ix. It is an aldehyde with the formula CH3C. It is a highly volatile flammable liquid with a strong fruity scent. It melts at 123.5 C and boils at 21 ° C. Acetaldehyde is found naturally in ripe fruits, coffee and fresh bread and is extracted by plants as part of their normal metabolism.
In the liver, the enzyme alkyl dehydrogenase converts ethanol to acetaldehyde, which is then converted to harmless acetic acid by acetaldehyde dehydrogenase. Acetaldehyde is more toxic than ethanol and is responsible for many of the symptoms of hangover. Acetylcysteine (NAC) is known to treat acetaldehyde in the blood and can help relieve the symptoms of hangover. L-cysteine and L-glutamine, each containing a sulfide drill group, can force a change in ethanol with the same effect.
The asteldehyde dehydrogenase gene is mutated in some people of Eastern descent, making this enzyme less efficient. In these people, acetaldehyde is produced after drinking, causing immediate and severe hangover symptoms. These people are not intoxicated. Chewing gum (disulfiram) also prevents oxidation of acetaldehyde with the same irritating effect for alcoholics It is used to treat certain alcoholics.
The final stages of fermentation of alcohols in bacteria, plants, and yeast include the conversion of pyruvate to estaldehyde by the enzyme pyruvate darboxylase, followed by the conversion of acetaldehyde to ethanol. The final reaction is the reaction of alcohol to hydrogen, which is now reversed.
In the chemical industry, acetaldehyde is mainly used as an intermediate in the extraction of acetic acid, some esters and various other chemicals. In 1989, an auction in the United States cost 40,740 million (336,000 tons).
Exposure to acetylide vapor causes irritation in the eyes, skin and respiratory tract in humans. Acetylide is an environmental pollutant emitted by automobiles and some industrial equipment. It is also found in tobacco smoke. It is thought to be caused by cancer.
Three molecules of acetaldehyde can form a lubricating paradigm and four molecules of acetaldehyde can form a tetramer.
Acetaldehyde (et ÂƒÃ „ÂtÃ ÂƒldÃ Â ™ h" Â "d) or ethyl (Ã Â • thÃ ™ ™" n ") l), CH3C, a colorless liquid aldehyde, sometimes simply called aldehyde. Melts at 123 C, boils at 20.8 C and soluble in water and ethanol. It is formed by partial oxidation of ethanol and oxidation of acetaldehyde to form acetic acid. Asteldehyde is commercially available by oxidizing ethylene with a podium catalyst (see Wicker process). In the manufacture of paints and synthetic resins, and as a preservative, a reducing agent (e.g., a silver mirror). When treated with a small amount of sulfuric acid, it forms a pyridide (CH3C) 3, which is used as a hypnosis by a tripper.
