L(+)-Tartaric acid is widely used as acidulates in beverages, and other foods, such as soft drinks, wine, candy, bread, and some colloidal sweetmeats. With its optical activity, L(+)-Tartaric acid is used as a chemical resolving agent to resolve DL-amino-butanol, an intermediate for anti-tubercular drugs. And it is used as a chiral pool to synthesize tartrate derivatives. With its acidity, it is used as a catalyst in the resin finishing of fabric or pH value regulator in oryzanol production. With its complexation, L(+)-Tartaric acid is used in electroplating, sulfur removal, and acid pickling.
It is also used as a complexing agent, screening agent, or chelating agent in chemical analysis and pharmaceutical inspection, or as a resist agent in dyeing. With its reduction, it is used as a reductive agent in manufacturing mirrors chemically or an imaging agent in photography.
It can also be complex with metal ions and can be used as a cleaning agent or polishing agent of metal surface.
