Product Detail

Acetic acid, also called acetic acid, is an organic compound, is an organic monic acid, the main component of vinegar. Pure anhydrous acetic acid (glacial acetic acid) is a colorless hygroscopic liquid with a freezing point of 16.6 ° C (62 ° F). After solidification, it becomes a colorless crystal, which is weakly acidic and corrosive in its aqueous solution. It is strongly corrosive to metals, and the steam is irritating to the eyes and nose.

Application

1. Food industry: AcOH is a commonly used food additive for flavoring and preserving food. Acetic acid can increase the acidity of food and improve the taste of food. It is often used to make vinegar, sauces, salad dressings, etc., and is also used for curing and pickling foods.

2. Chemical industry: chemical acetic acid is widely used in the chemical industry. It can be used as a solvent and catalyst for organic synthesis, for example in esterification reactions where acetic acid can react with alcohol to form acetate. acetic acid is also used to synthesize certain chemicals, such as ethyl acetate and acetic anhydride.

3. Pharmaceutical industry: Acetic acid is used in the pharmaceutical industry for the synthesis of drug intermediates. It can also be used as a solvent for drugs and has bactericidal and antibacterial effects in some topical drugs.

5. Printing and dye industry: acetic acid can be used as an acid conditioner in the printing and dyeing industry to change the color and brightness of dyes. It can also be used as a solvent and cleaning agent in the printing process.

6. Water treatment: acetic acid can be used as a water treatment agent to adjust the pH of water. It can neutralize alkaline substances in water and is used to deal with acid-base balance.

7. Laboratory use: Acetic acid is often used in the laboratory as a reagent or solvent. It can be used in acid-base neutralization experiment, enzyme activity test, dissolution experiment and dyeing experiment.
