L(+) Potassium Sodium Tartrate

Natural, Synthetic or Racemic? Until the 90s, Potassium Sodium Tartrate was divided into two types: Natural and Synthetic. Natural was the product obtained recovering the tartrates produced by nature: essentially derived from wine industry, this product is optically active (it rotates a beam of polarized light of an angle of rotation “alpha”) it is more[…]

Antimony Potassium Tartrate

As previously described for Sodium Potassium Tartrate, with Antimony Potassium Tartrate we are facing the same dilemma: what the better option would be, between Natural Racemic or Synthetic product, being the chemical structure the key criterion. Let us start by defining the RACEMIC product: it is a SYNTHETIC product obtained through the same process described[…]
