Acetic acid is an organic compound with the chemical formula CH3COOH. It is also known as Ethanoic Acid. 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.Acetic acid, also known as ethanoic acid, has a molecular formula CH3COOH. It is a weak monoprotic acid which is able to lose a proton from its acid functional group (-COOH) readily and produce a conjugate base, acetate anion.
