The chemical formula of the propionic (propanoic) acid is C3H6O2.
Propionic acid is slightly weaker than acetic acid because of the additional delocalization of electrons in the longer alkane chain on propionic acid, versus just the end methyl group adjacent to the carboxyl group on acetic acid. Greater delocalization on the opposite side of the carbonyl group in propionic acid creates a weaker dipole moment on the C-O bond of the carbonyl group, which results in a slightly stronger O-H bond, resulting in less dissociation of the COOH proton. The ratio of dissociated (propionate + proton) to propionic acid makes propionic acid slightly weaker than acetic acid.
Yes it does not dissociate completely

They put propionic acid in Sara Lee bread.
It is mainly Propionic acid (or propanoic acid) which is present in many sweat samples. This acid is a breakdown product of some amino acids.
The common acids used in food preservation are sorbic acid, benzoic acid and propionic acid. These acids impair the growth of bacteria on food.
There are two things that make up fermentation. The two things that make up fermentation are lactic acid and propionic acid.
Concentrated Nitric acid is most dangerous acid
No. Ibuprofen is derived from propionic acid. Aspirin is acetylsalicylic acid. However, they are both drugs known as NSAIDs and have a common mechanism of action in the body.
This formula is actually valid for 7 types of compound, from which some are acidic (like Propionic acid) and some are base (like Methyl acetate)
they are not dangerous you can actually drink acid.
