Succinic anhydride is used as a sizing agent and curative for epoxy resin. It acts as an additive in paper production. It is utilized in the preparation of covalently cross-linked oxidized-alginate and N-succinyl-chitosan hydrogels. It serves as an intermediate for functionalized oxide surfaces on a chip and for polyester resins. Further, it finds use in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and in coatings.

This Thermo Scientific Chemicals brand product was originally part of the Alfa Aesar product portfolio. Some documentation and label information may refer to the legacy brand. The original Alfa Aesar product / item code or SKU reference has not changed as a part of the brand transition to Thermo Scientific Chemicals.
