Citric acid, a colorles weak organic compound with the chemical formula HOC(CH?CO?H)?, is a naturally occurring acid found in citrus fruits. Its significance in biochemistry lies in its role as an intermediate in the citric acid cycle, which is an esential part of the metabolic proces.
Citric acid is available in two forms: an anhydrous (water-free) form and a monohydrate form. The anhydrous form crystallizes when hot water is used, whereas the monohydrate form is obtained when citric acid is crystallized in cold water.
