About Acetic Acid
Acetic Acid (CH3COOH) is a clear, colorless organic liquid with a strong odor resembling household vinegar. Also referred to ethanoic acid, ethylic acid, vinegar acid, and methane carboxylic acid, acetic acid is an aliphatic organic acid that has hygroscopic, and corrosive properties. When it is pure, it is referred to as glacial acetic acid.
Acetic acid is utilized as a food additive at low concentrations.
