Glacial Acetic Acid
A water-free (anhydrous) acetic acid is known as a Glacial acetic acid. It appears as a clear colorless liquid that is completely miscible with water. It is an excellent polar protic solvent & used frequently as a solvent for recrystallization to purify the organic compounds. Acetic acid is often used as a solvent for reactions that involve carbocations, such as Friedel-Crafts alkylation. It is used as vinegar. Glacial acetic acid is corrosive to metals and tissue. It can injure skin on contact. Used to make other chemicals, as a food additive, and in petroleum production. Shree Chemicals is a Glacial Acetic Acid Supplier as per your required quantity.

Acetic AcidAcetic Acid is known as ethanoic acid, It is a colourless liquid organic compound. It’s the most important of the carboxylic acids. A dilute (approximately 5% by volume solution) of acetic acid produced by oxidation & fermentation of natural carbohydrates is known as vinegar. A salt, acylal of acetic acid is called acetate. Acetic acid is produced industrially both by bacterial fermentation & synthetically. Near about 75% of Acetic Acid made by the carbonylation of methanol is used in the chemical industry. It is a synthetic carboxylic acid having antifungal & antibacterial properties.

Hazards And Storage
Acetic acid can be a hazardous chemical -
- If not used in a safe and appropriate manner. Acetic acid is highly corrosive to the skin and eyes and, because of this, must be handled with extreme care.
- Acetic acid can also damage the internal organs if ingested or in the case of vapor inhalation.
- Exposure to acetic acid can have serious hazards to your health. Acetic acid is especially dangerous when it comes in contact with either the skin or eyes.
- Preparation of acetic acid vapours inhaled at 10 ppm can cause some irritation of eyes, nose, and throat; at 100 ppm marked lung irritation and possible damage to lungs, eyes, and skin may result.
- Acetic acid taken into your lungs through the nose or mouth, can cause respiratory symptoms, such as coughing, difficulty breathing, and sore throat as well as nervous system issues, such as headache and dizziness.
