About Acetic Acid

Acetic acid an organic compound with the formula CH3COOH, is a simple monocarboxylic acid containing two carbons. Acetic acid is mainly produced via chemical route that involves homogeneous as well as heterogeneous catalytic methods. Most acetic acid is made by methanol carbonylation, where methanol and carbon monoxide react to produce acetic acid.

It is an important chemical reagent and industrial chemical that is used in the production of polyethylene terephthalate. One of the most common ways consumers may come into contact with acetic acid is in the form of household vinegar, which is naturally made from fermentable sources such as wine, potatoes, apples, grapes, berries and grains.
