Applications
Mandelic acid is used in the pharmaceutical industry as an antibacterial to treat urinary tract infections. It acts as a precursor for making various drugs. It is also used as an oral antibiotic. Mandelic acid peels are widely used for treating damaged skin due to its less penetrating and irritating property. Enantiomeric resolution of (±)-Mandelic acid is performed by using the chiral amine (1R,2S)-(-)-ephedrine followed by acidification to prepare (R)-( -)-Mandelic acid.

Solubility
Soluble in water, diethyl ether, ethanol and isopropanol.

Notes
Hydrophobic and light sensitive. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents and reducing agents.
