What compound is the result of the isomerization of maleic acid?

Answer

Maleic acid is a dicarboxylic acid or a compound with two carboxy groups. It is soluble in water and has a lower melting point than other acids. The isomerization of maleic acid causes maleic acid to become fumaric acid. This isomerization requires a catalyst such as mineral acids and thiourea. The isomerization is one of the main uses of maleic acid. Maleic acid and fumeric acid do not spontaneously convert to one another, but the process is possible due to photolysis and bromine.
