Brief Overview

 

Acetic acid is an organic compound with the chemical formula CH3COOH. It is one of the simplest carboxylic acids and mainly produced as a precursor to poly-vinyl-acetate and cellulose acetate. Acetic acid is an important chemical reagent for both industrial and household purposes. It is a colourless liquid that has a distinctive sour taste and is pungent smelling. It is corrosive by nature. It is a natural antibacterial agent and is a polar solvent that dissolves both polar as well as non-polar compounds such as oils, sulphur and iodine.

 

Manufacturing Process

 

Acetic acid can be produced synthetically, as well as through bacterial fermentation. There are many ways in which acetic acid is produced. But majorly, the industrial production of acetic acid is by the carbonylation of methanol. In this method, methanol is made to react with carbon monoxide, the overall reaction is indicated as:

CH3OH + CO CH3COOH

 

The reaction mechanism involves 3 steps:

CH3OH + HI CH3I + H2O

CH3I + CO CH3COI

CH3COI + H2O CH3COOH + HI

 

The process needs a metal catalyst that is a metal carbonyl, for the carbonylation. There are two catalysts used Rhodium and Iridium, of which using Iridium is greener and more efficient. Acetic acid to be used in the food industry is produced biologically, through anaerobic fermentation.



Solvent

The primary use of acetic acid is a solvent for many industrial processes.

 

Flavours and Fragrances

It is used for manufacturing perfumes and fragrances.

Medical Industry

It is also used in clinical laboratory analysis for testing blood samples.  It also serves medicinal purposes such as for outer ear infections, to help prevent the growth of fungus and bacteria. It is also used as an effective tool for cervical cancer screening and has also been known to have been used in controlling some symptoms of diabetes.

 

Food Industry

It is an approved food additive and is present in many packaged food products as an acidity regulator and as a condiment.

 

Textile Industry

It is used for manufacturing synthetic fibres in the textile industry.

 

Other Applications

It is used in the printing industry as a component of inks and dyes, in the polymer industry for manufacturing rubber, plastics, soft drink bottles, etc., in the manufacture of pesticides and insecticides, to produce cellulose acetate for photographic films. Also, many organic and inorganic salts are produced from acetic acid, for example, silver acetate, palladium acetate, etc.
