 HAZARD ALERT: Corrosive to skin and tissue; moderate fire risk (flash point: 39 ºC); moderately toxic by ingestion and inhalation. LD50 3310 mg/kg. TLV 25 mg/m3.
Storage: Organic #1 inside a dedicated acid cabinet. Store away from nitric acid. If acid cabinet is not available store in Flinn Saf-Cube. Acetic acid crystallizes at 16.6 ºC. Room temperature is normally about 25 ºC. So, a 10-degree reduction from room temperature will cause the material to crystallize. Return the substance to a warm environment and it will return to a liquid state. Such a freezing/defrosting process does not alter the nature of the substance.
Disposal: #24a
Shelf Life: Indefinite if stored properly. Cap safety color code: Brown.
Soluble: Miscible with water, alcohol, glycerol and ether. Insoluble in carbon disulfide.
Color: Colorless
Odor: Pungent odor; like vinegar.
CAS No. 64-19-7
Safety Purchase Suggestion: Buy and store only small package sizes and small quantities. For safety reasons, Flinn offers larger sizes of acetic acid and other hazardous substances in PVC-coated bottles. We have attempted to price the products in these safer containers as low as possible. In the event of breakage, acid and glass shards are safely retained in a PVC outer envelope. The PVC-coated bottle is a safer package for science teachers. 

Bottle Caps, Acetic Acid, Brown
Replacement caps for most common acid bottles. Caps are color-coded and should fit 500-mL and 2.5-L bottles.
