Inorganic Acids Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
Inorganic acids are described as acids derived from inorganic compounds or mineral compounds. The most common types of inorganic acids are hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid and nitric acid. Apart from these, boric acid, hydrofluoric acid, perchloric acid and phosphoric acid are some of the most used inorganic acids. Inorganic acids have different strengths ranging from very high strength sulfuric acid to weak boric acid. However the inorganic acids tend to be easily soluble in water, and insoluble in organic compounds or solvents. Inorganic acids are mostly used as a raw material in the...
Mold Inhibitors Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
Mold inhibitors serve as additives which are used for preventing mold growth and reducing the mold contamination, for the purpose of minimizing the risk of having mycotoxin producing mold which proliferate on feed or grain. These inhibitors have the function to suppress generation of molds. Mold inhibitors generally include propionic acid and other organic acids. However, as mold inhibitors have no effect on mycotoxins which are already present in the contaminated feed, they may still be present even if the growth has been avoided. Various mold inhibitors are used in the industry such...
