    Abstract : The mild acid hydrolysis of cyanocobalamin gives rise to a mixture of mono-and di-carboxylic acids and one tricarboxylic acid. The acid investigated forms more that 90% of the monocarboxylic acid fraction and also occurs as an intermediate in the synthesis of vitamin B12 by Propionibacterium shermanii. It can be grown in very large crystals on which the X-ray and neutron diffraction studies were made.
