GLACIAL ACETIC ACID

Acetic Acid is an organic compound with the chemical formula CH3COOH. It is a colourless liquid that when undiluted is also called glacial acetic acid.  As the main component of vinegar, it has a distinctive sour taste and pungent smell. Although it is classified as a weak acid, acetic acid is highly dangerous to skin.

Acetic acid is one of the simplest carboxylic acids.  It is an important chemical reagent and industrial chemical, used in the production of Esters, cellulose acetate, photographic film and polyvinyl acetate for wood glue, as well as synthetic fibers 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.
