Pyruvic acid is a low mole weight alpha keto acid (ketone along with carboxylic acid). Pyruvic acid contains a ketone bond on the carbon atom next to the acid group. If the ketone is on the second carbon next to the acid group, it is called beta-keto acid.
Pyruvic acid is the main material for producing tryptophan, benzendrine, macaroon as well as vitamin B.
