What is acetic acid?

Acetic acid is an organic compound that is one of the most important carboxylic acids. Other names include ethanoic acid, glacial acetic acid and ethyl acid.

This compound is a colorless liquid with a vinegar-like odor that has a very high corrosive power and dissolves easily in water. It also has good solubility in tetrachloromethane, ethanol, ether and acetone. Acetic acid is produced both artificially and naturally (by bacteria).

In industry, acetic acid is used in the preparation of metal acetates and in some printing processes.

Vinyl acetate is widely used in plastics, cellulose acetate in photographic and textile films, and volatile organic esters (such as ethyl and butyl acetate) are widely used as solvents for resins, paints, and varnishes.

Biologically, this acid is an important biological (metabolic) substance that is naturally present in body fluids and juices.

It is a corrosive and colorless liquid with a boiling point of 117.9 ° C and a melting point of 16.6 ° C.

This acid is one of the oldest fermentation products, although today most of it is produced by methanol carbonylation and only a small part of it, mainly as vinegar, is produced by fermentation. However, in the concept of bio-products, in recent years, methods have been explored to optimize the production of fermentation-based acetic acid using low-cost feed and reduce energy consumption.

This acid is a colorless, vinegar-smelling, toxic and corrosive liquid. Its melting point is 16.73 ° C and normal boiling point is 117.9 ° C.

The raw material of acetic acid is produced in Fanavaran Petrochemical.

Acetic acid features:

Acetic acid is a very useful chemical in various industries that is found in liquid form. This chemical liquid has no color and is considered a colorless chemical. This chemical compound has a nasty, sour smell.

Acetic acid reaches its freezing point at a temperature of 16.6 ° C and freezes completely. This temperature is lower than normal room temperature. For this reason, acetic acid is found frozen at room temperature.

Acetic acid reaches its boiling point at a temperature of 118 ° C. It also reaches its flash point at a temperature of 104 degrees Celsius and catches fire. Well soluble in water. In fact, acetic acid can be dissolved in water in any proportion.

Acetic acid and cleaning:

Among the unique properties of acetic acid are cleaning and cleansing. Acetic acid and sulfuric acid have the ability to clean and remove various masses such as the mass of valves, the mass of kettles and samovars, the mass between tiles and.. Acetic acid can also disinfect and clean various surfaces.

Acetic acid in agriculture:

Acetic acid is used to kill fungi and substances harmful to plants. It dilutes acetic acid and sprays it on a variety of plants, helping to eliminate harmful substances for plants.

Application of acetic acid in medicine:

Acetic acid is one of the most widely used chemicals in medicine and the treatment of diseases and illnesses. Acetic acid is used in medicine to treat some cancers. Acetic acid also has the ability to eliminate ear infections and sinus infections.

Acetic acid in food:

Acetic acid is naturally present in vinegar. And it can be used like sodium acetate as a seasoning for various foods. Also, for the production of salads and pickles, vinegar is used, which has a sour taste and can be considered as one of the main flavors.
