Acetic acid is a raw material for several key petrochemical intermediates and products. It is a base product in a wide range of organic synthesis and reactions such as: production of plastics; pharmaceuticals; chemical solvent; latex coagulant; acidulant food additive; buffer in cosmetics; photographic chemical; dyes; insecticides; oil-well acidifier; and aluminum brightener.

Acetic Acid (a.k.a. Ethanoic Acid, Hydrogen Acetate, Vinegar) is an organic compound, in the carboxylic acids class. It is a clear, colorless liquid, with sharp odor and burning taste, miscible with water and most organic solvents. It can be found naturally in dilute solutions in plants and animal systems, as well as in ocean water, rain and oilfield brines. Its existence has been known for more than 2000 years, and, currently, it is the most commercialized organic acid worldwide. Acetic acid, in organic process, can be comparable to sulfuric acid in mineral chemical industries, as its movements mirror the ones of the industry as a whole, and a country’s consumption can help to establish the current state of its economy.
