Acetic acid, CH3COOH, also known as ethanoic acid, is an organic acid which has a pungent smell. It is a weak acid, in that it is only partially dissociated in an aqueous solution. Pure, glacial acetic acid is hygroscopic (absorbs moisture from the air) and freezes at 16.5C to a colourless crystalline solid. The pure acid, and concentrated solutions, are dangerously corrosive.
Acetic acid is one of the simplest carboxylic acids, and is a very important industrial chemical.
