L-ascorbic acid is used in a range of industrial and manufacturing applications, including as a developing agent and preservative in photo production, and in water purification, where it is used to help remove the taste of iodine in sterilized, potable water. It is also used in fluorescence microscopy, to understand cell biology. In this application, ascorbic acid helps increase fluorescence, making cells more visible to researchers.
