Applications
Pharmaceutical industry

Taurine has anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, analgesic, sedative, hypotensive, hypoglycemic, antiarrhythmic, antibacterial, antiplatelet aggregation, enhancing immune function, cholagogic, liver strengthening, detoxification, regulating vascular tension and other effects. It can be used for the treatment of acute and chronic hepatitis, fatty liver, cholecystitis, bronchitis, tonsillitis, acute conjunctivitis Herpes and viral conjunctivitis; It is also used to treat cold, fever, epilepsy, infantile spasm, heart failure, arrhythmia, hypertension, uterine bleeding, arteriosclerosis, acne and so on.

Food additives

Taurine is an essential amino acid for human and animals. Lack of taurine in children may lead to dysplasia, visual impairment, increased susceptibility to epilepsy, and even cardiomyopathy; The lack of taurine in adults also endangers their health. As an excellent food additive,

Organic synthesis intermediate

It is used in the synthesis of fluorescent brightener. For example, the introduction of aminoethanesulfonic acid group into stilbene bis triazine fluorescent brighteners can improve the water solubility of brighteners and enhance the washing and whitening effect. This kind of whitening agent is mainly used for whitening of papermaking, cellulose fiber and polyamide fiber. In addition, taurine can be reacted with polyacrylamide to make functional polymer flocculant n-taurine polyacrylamide, which can be used in the gypsum separation process of wet process phosphoric acid. Because it can control the crystal form of gypsum and reduce the viscosity of phosphoric acid in the process of gypsum formation, it can improve the filtration speed and increase the filtration efficiency. Taurine can also be used in the preparation of reactive dyes and the synthesis of other organic compounds.
