Acetic Oxide Price Trend

Acetic oxide prices are dependent on the price of feedstock acetic acid. Feedstock prices pushed up the acetic oxide market as transportation costs from China to other Asian countries increased. The price of the chemical had risen to 1275 USD/MT on March 11th, up 20.62% from the previous day's price of 1057 USD/MT.

With rising crude oil and natural gas prices as a result of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the product's supply has dwindled, causing regional market sentiment to deteriorate. The Chinese acetic oxide market was driven by the fermentation of China's energy crisis, as well as the growing upstream methanol market. Other regions' markets for the chemical, namely Europe and the United States, are constrained by rising upstream natural gas prices and surging demand from its downstream dyes industries.

About Acetic Oxide:

Because it is the simplest isolable anhydride of a carboxylic acid, acetic oxide is the most commonly used reagent in organic synthesis. It is primarily used to convert cellulose to cellulose acetate, which is a component of photographic film and other coated materials, as well as in the manufacture of cigarette filters. It is also used in the production of aspirin and as a wood preservative to produce longer-lasting wood.

Chemical Formula:

  • C4H6O3


  • Acetyl acetate
  • 108-24-7
  • Acetanhydride
  • Acetyl anhydride
  • Ethanoic anhydride
  • Acetyl2- oxide

Molecular Weight:

  • 102.09 g/mol

Industrial Uses:

  • Adhesives and sealant chemicals
  • Intermediates
  • Solvents (which become part of product formulation or mixture)
  • Used as a drying agent during a reaction
  • Viscosity adjustors

Production Processes:

  • Production of Acetic Oxide from Acetic Acid and Acetone; from Methyl Acetate

Acetic oxide is made by reacting acetic acid and acetone in a two-step process. Acetone is pyrolyzed to produce ketene, which is then mixed with acetic acid to produce acetic oxide.
