Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Glucuronic acid (from Ancient Greek "sweet" + "urine") is a carboxylic acid. Its structure is similar to that of glucose. However, glucuronic acid's sixth carbon is oxidized to a carboxylic acid. Its formula is C6H10O7. The salts and esters of glucuronic acid are known as glucuronates; the anion C6H9O7 is the glucuronate ion. Glucuronic acid should not be confused with gluconic acid, a linear carboxylic acid resulting from the oxidation of a different carbon of glucose. Both glucuronic acid and gluconic acid are reported to be found in the fermented drink known as kombucha.show more
