Niacet’s acetates are also used in various application such as in the production of penicillin as antibiotics, hormones, enzymes and oral cleansers.

One of the most commonly known antibiotics is penicillin. Penicillin is a natural substance produced by the micro-organism penicillium chrysogenum, which is related to the green mold commonly, found on fruit or jam. Our acetates like Ammonium Acetate and Potassium Acetate are used in the penicillin production process.

In many applications Ammonium Acetate can be used as a buffer in the separation of different compounds in liquids. For example in the separation of hormones from human urine.
