Adipic acid is the most important dicarboxylic acid.It is mainly used as a precursor for the production of nylon. Adipic acid has been incorporated into controlled-release formulation matrix tablets to obtain pH-independent release for both weakly basic and weakly acidic drugs. It has also been incorporated into the polymeric coating of hydrophilic monolithic systems to modulate the intragel pH, resulting in zero-order release of a hydrophilic drug,in production of Plasticizes, poly-amides, Polyesters and herbicides in paint and varnish and textile industries.
