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.
Shelf Life: Indefinite if stored properly. Cap safety color code: Brown.
Soluble: Miscible with water, alcohol, glycerol and ether. Insoluble in carbon disulfide.
Odor: Pungent odor; like vinegar.
