Formula[edit]

The structural formula of the acid is wrong. It has 6 carbons! Someone should change it --Kupirijo 22:12, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

No, it does have 5 carbons —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.1.100.110 (talk) 14:40, 8 April 2008 (UTC)


Niche uses[edit]

Reference 5 does not deal with additives "used in cigarettes to increase nicotine delivery in smoke and binding of nicotine to neural receptors" and does not mention levulinic acid at all. Please give a correct reference. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.204.138.107 (talk) 09:44, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

   Okay, there seem to be two documents bearing the same title; one ("Report No. 03-05") is in fact a suitable reference. I will add the necessary information and a link in the reference section.  — Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.204.138.107 (talk) 12:44, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
