Acetic Acid is an organic compound with the chemical formula CH3COOH. which when diluted is also called Glacial Acetic Acid. Acetic Acid is the main component of vinegar (apart from water), and has a distinctive sour taste and pungent smell. Although it is classified as a weak Acid, concentrated acetic Acid is corrosive, and attacks the skin.
Acetic Acid is one of the simplest carboxylic Acids. It is an important chemical reagent and industrial chemical, mainly used in the production of cellulose acetate mainly for photographic film and Polyvinyl Acetate for wood glue, as well as synthetic fibres and fabrics. In households, diluted acetic Acid is often used in descaling agents. In the food industry, acetic Acid is used under the food additive code E260 as an acidity regulator and as a condiment.
Glacial Acetic Acid is used in paint, varnish, lacquer and related products after conforming the parameters of purity, freezing point, color, water content, iron content, acetaldehyde content and formic acid content for specific requirement.
Glacial Acetic Acid at diluted concentrations can be used to remove warts or verruca. It can also be used via iontophoresis to treat bone spurs. Industrial uses include photography and the manufacturing of aspirin. It's a general-purpose Acid. It has thousands of uses.
