About Ammonium Acetate

Ammonium Acetate is a white, hygroscopic solid and can be derived from the reaction of ammonia and acetic acid. Ammonium acetate is produced by the neutralization of acetic acid with ammonium carbonate or by saturating glacial acetic acid with ammonia.

Ammonium Acetate is used to replace cell buffers that contain non-volatile salts in preparing samples for mass spectrometry. It is also popular as a buffer for mobile phases for HPLC with ELSD detection.
