Metabolite Identification
Common NameMaleic acid
DescriptionFumaric acid, also known as fumarate or E297, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as dicarboxylic acids and derivatives. These are organic compounds containing exactly two carboxylic acid groups. Fumaric acid exists as a solid, possibly soluble (in water), and a weakly acidic compound (based on its pKa) molecule. Fumaric acid exists in all living species, ranging from bacteria to humans. Fumaric acid is a potentially toxic compound.
