Acetic acid is a colorless liquid organic compound with the chemical formula CH3COOH. When undiluted, it is sometimes called glacial acetic acid. Acetic acid has a distinctive sour taste and pungent smell. It is mainly produced as a precursor to polyvinyl acetate and cellulose acetate.
Acetic acid is the second simplest carboxylic acid (after formic acid). It is an important chemical reagent and industrial chemical, used primarily in the production of cellulose acetate, polyvinyl acetate for wood glue, and synthetic fibers and fabrics. In households, diluted acetic acid is often used in descaling agents. In the food industry, acetic acid is controlled by the food additive code E260 as an acidity regulator and as a condiment.
Organic or inorganic salts are also produced from acetic acid, such as Sodium acetate, used in the textile industry and as a food preservative (E262); Copper(II) acetate, used as a pigment and a fungicide; Aluminum acetate and iron(II) acetate used as mordants for dyes; Silver acetate, used as a pesticide and etc.
