Glacial Acetic Acid

A water-free (anhydrous) acetic acid is known as a Glacial acetic acid. It appears as a clear colorless liquid that is completely miscible with water. It is an excellent polar protic solvent & used frequently as a solvent for recrystallization to purify the organic compounds. Acetic acid is often used as a solvent for reactions that involve carbocations, such as Friedel-Crafts alkylation. It is used as vinegar. Glacial acetic acid is corrosive to metals and tissue. It can injure skin on contact. Used to make other chemicals, as a food additive, and in petroleum production.
Acetic Acid is known as ethanoic acid, It is a colourless liquid organic compound. It’s the most important of the carboxylic acids. A dilute (approximately 5% by volume solution) of acetic acid produced by oxidation & fermentation of natural carbohydrates is known as vinegar. A salt, acylal of acetic acid is called acetate. Acetic acid is produced industrially both by bacterial fermentation & synthetically. Near about 75% of Acetic Acid made by the carbonylation of methanol is used in the chemical industry. It is a synthetic carboxylic acid having antifungal & antibacterial properties.
