These Glacial Acetic Acid chemical formula for CH3COOH. Glacial Acetic Acid is colorless. Glacial Acetic Acid soluble in water and many organic solvents. Have a strong corrosive acid, which is weak acid solution, and perform many lively metal, alkaline oxides, the reaction of alkali such as acetate. Some acetate such as manganese acetate, acetic acid staining industrial aluminum can be used to do the mordant. Industrial production of acetic acid are two categories: One category is food as raw materials, using fermentation brewing vinegar, edible vinegar often this method. Apart from edible vinegar with 3 to 6% of the acetic acid, also contain other organic acids, protein, etc...The other is to extract oil cracking gas ethylene (C2H4) or butane (C4H10) as raw materials, under certain conditions, into acetic acid oxidation. Acetic acid is an important organic chemical raw materials for the production of cellulose acetate, acrylic paint solvents, perfumes, dyes, medicine, etc.
