Applications
Barbituric acid is widely used in the manufacturing of plastics, textiles, polymers and pharmaceuticals. It is an active ingredient in the production of Vitamin B2. It is a strong acid in an aqueous medium with an active methylene group involved Knoevenegal condensation. It is used as precursor for the preparation of 5-arylidene barbituric acid by reacting with aromatic aldehyde. It is also used in electrochemical oxidation of iodine using cyclic voltammetry and controlled potential coulometry.

Solubility
Slightly soluble in water.

Notes
Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
