2, Introduction:

Lipoic acid is an organosulfur compound, one enantiomer of which is an essential cofactor for many enzyme complexes. This yellow solid is a carboxylic acid and features a cyclic disulfide, or ditholane ring, functional group. The R-enantiomer is biosynthesized and used as a cofactor. It is essential for aerobic life and is a common and sometimes controversial Dietary Supplement. It is usually called "lipoic acid," but this is not the form it takes in life.
