Acetic Acid:

Acetic Acid is 'water free acetic acid'. Acetic acid glacial is concerted (very little or no water) acetic acid. It is called "glacial" because it forms small crystals slightly below room temperature that look like ice. Glacial acetic acids are a trivial name for water-free (anhydrous) acetic acid. It is a natural compound with the chemical formula CH3COOH. It is a colorless liquid that they when undiluted are also called as “glacial acetic acid”. Although it is classified as a weak acid, acetic acid is highly dangerous to skin. A common abbreviation for acetic acid is HOAc, where Ac stands for the acetyl group CH3−C (=O).

Glacial Acetic acid Pure and it's a colorless liquid that absorbs water from the environment, and freezes at 16.7 °C to a colorless crystalline solid. It is a weak acid, and is known as Glacial because on freezing it forms needle shape crystals. It is a clear, colorless liquid with a pungent odor. It is the obtained by the destructive distillation of wood, by the oxidation of acetylene and water by air, and by the oxidation of ethyl alcohol by aerobic bacteria, as in the production of vinegar. Glacial acetic acid is strongly corrosive and potentially flammable, having a low flash point. Home vinegar is five percent by mass acetic. Dilute acid acetic in the form of vinegar has many home and culinary purposes.

How to store the Glacial Acetic Acid:- Store glacial acetic acids in the glass bottle at put it in dark place, away from the sunlight and gas stove.

Health Benefits of Glacial Acetic Acid:- Glacial acetic acids may benefit the digestive system by improving the absorption and utilization of several essential nutrients. Acetic acid is an organic with the chemical formula CH3COOH. It is a colorless liquid that when undiluted is also called glacial acetic acid. Vinegar is roughly 4%-8% acetic acid by volume, making acetic acid the main component of vinegar apart from water. It has a distinctive sour taste and pungent smell. Besides its production as household vinegar, it is mainly produced as a precursor to polyvinyl acetate and cellulose acetate. Although it is classified as a weak acid, concentrated acetic acid is corrosive and can attack the 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.
