Acetic Anhydride Production Cost Analysis 2020

Acetic anhydride, or better known as the ethanoic anhydride, is a well-known chemical compound. It is the simplest isolable anhydride of a carboxylic acid that is widely common as a reagent in organic synthesis. In appearance, it is a colourless liquid that smells strongly of acetic acid that is formed by its reaction with moisture in the air.

Acetic anhydride, like most acid anhydrides, is a flexible molecule with a nonplanar structure. Like most of the acid anhydrides, the carbonyl carbon atom of acetic anhydride is composed of electrophilic character as the leaving group is a carboxylate. The internal asymmetry may contribute to acetic anhydride's potent electrophilicity as the asymmetric geometry makes one side of a carbonyl carbon atom more reactive than the other, and in doing so, it tends to consolidate the electro positivity of a carbonyl carbon atom to one side.

As indicated by its organic chemistry, acetic anhydride is mainly used for acetylation leading to commercially significant materials. Its most extensive application is for the conversion of cellulose to cellulose acetate, which is a component of photographic films and other coated materials and is used in the manufacture of cigarette filters. Similarly, it is employed in the preparation of aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) through the acetylation of salicylic acid. It is also utilised as a wood preservative via autoclave impregnation to make a longer-lasting timber.
