Phenylsuccinc acid is mainly used as an acid activator for solder flux in electronic industry. Other applications includes chemical reagent and pharmaceutical synthesis. Coordinated with adipic acid and some surfactant and adjuvent, phenylsuccinic acid can increase solder paste's solderability. Function of organic acids in solder flux is to remove metal oxides during Surface Mount Technology (SMT) process.
