  • Molecular weight of glycolic acid

    The molecular weight of glycolic acid is available in molecular weight page of glycolic acid, which is calculated as the sum of the atomic masses of each constituent element multiplied by the number of atoms of that element.

  • Chemical formula of glycolic acid

    The chemical formula of glycolic acid is given in chemical formula page of glycolic acid, which identifies each constituent element by its chemical symbol and indicates the proportionate number of atoms of each element.

  • InChI (IUPAC International Chemical Identifier) information of glycolic acid

    An alternative way of expressing structural information in text format is InChI. The full standard InChI of glycolic acid is:


    It can provide a standard way to encode the molecular information of glycolic acid to facilitate the search for the compound information in databases and on the web.

    The condensed, 27 character standard InChIKey (hashed version of the full standard InChI) of glycolic acid is:


    The InChIKey may allow easier web searches for glycolic acid, but it needs to be linked to the full InChI to get back to the original structure of the glycolic acid since the full standard InChI cannot be reconstructed from the InChIKey.
