Acetic Acid



Acetic Acid is an organic acid, from which vinegar gets its sour taste and pungent smell. This acid is weak and is only a partially dissociated acid, when in an aqueous solution. Pure, water-free acetic acid is a colourless liquid, which absorbs water from the environment and freezes at 16.5C (62 F) to a crystalline solid. The pure acid, and concentrated solutions, are dangerously corrosive. Mainly used in soft drink bottles, cellulose acetate, photographic film etc, this is one of the simplest carboxylic acids.
