Applications
Glycolic acid is used for acne and anti-aging treatment. It is also employed in the textile industry as a dyeing and tanning agent. It is used in emulsion polymers, solvents and additives for ink and paints. It is also useful as an intermediate for organic synthesis such as redox reactions, esterification and long chain polymerization. It acts as a monomer in the preparation of polyglycolic acid and other biocompatible copolymers. Further, it is used as a preservative and flavoring agent in organic synthesis. It is also used in adhesives and plastics.

Solubility
Soluble in water, methanol, diethyl ether, acetone, acetic acid and ethyl acetate.

Notes
Hygroscopic. Incompatible with bases, oxidizing agents and reducing agents.
