ascorbic acid

Postby mags » Fri Jun 29, 2007 8:40 pm

I need to measure ascorbic acid for a lotion recipe. As I couldn't find ascorbic acid as an ingredient to find the proper conversion, is there another ingredient that has similar weight, etc. that I could use instead?

If one was to know a substance that has a similiar weight to acsorbic acid, they would have to know the weight of ascorbic acid, otherwise, a comparsion couldn't be made. :-) As a rule of law, an MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) is required on all chemicals sold in the USA. You can search for them on the Internet.

An MSDS on ascorbic acid can be found here: http://www.jtbaker.com/msds/englishhtml/a7608.htm

It states the density (specific gravity) is 1.65

Another safety data sheet can be found here: http://www.physchem.ox.ac.uk/MSDS/AS/ascorbic_acid.html

It also states the specific gravity is 1.65.
