Vitamin B12, also known as cyanocobalamin, is an indispensable water-soluble vitamin that plays a crucial role in human health and certain microbial processes. Although not a common ingredient in industrial chemicals, it serves as a vital cofactor in enzymatic reactions related to methyl group transfer, essential for DNA synthesis, red blood cell formation, and neurological health. Its primary applications are in human nutrition and biotechnology, where it is used to produce enzymes and bioactive compounds, rather than in conventional industrial chemical reactions.
