General description

Sodium pyruvate (SP) is a simplest keto-acid. It crystallizes as very thin plates and belongs to the monoclinic system.[98] Its utility in Knoevenagel condensation carried out in an aqueous medium has been examined.[99] The standard molar enthalpy of formation and molar enthalpy of dissolution of SP at infinite dilution have been obtained.[00] Its efficacy in treating mitochondrial DNA depletion syndromes has been investigated.[01]

Application

Sodium pyruvate has been used:
  • To prepare Bull Tyrode′s albumin-lactate-pyruvate diluent.
[12]
  • In pyruvate tolerance test.
  • [03]
  • To prepare oligodendrocyte culture medium.
  • [04]
