About Acetic Acid:
Acetic Acid is known to be a colourless liquid organic compound with a pungent smell. When undiluted, it is often coined as glacial acetic acid. Vinegar is no less than 4% acetic acid in volume, thus, making acetic acid the primary element of vinegar apart from water. It has a distinctive sour taste and it contains a methyl group linked to a carboxyl group. It is primarily manufactured as a precursor to PVA (polyvinyl acetate), household vinegar, and cellulose acetate.
Chemical Formula of Acetic Acid:
- Ethanoic acid
- Ethylic Acid
- Acetic Acid, Glacial
- 60.05 g/mol
- Acetic Anhydride

- Polymeric materials
- Production of Acetic Acid via Methanol; via Acetaldehyde; via Ethylene; and via Butane
While producing Acetic Acid from methanol, the process of carbonylation is carried out. Carbon monoxide is utilised as a source of carbonylation and the reaction is carried out in the presence of a catalyst along with water, producing Acetic Acid.
