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.
Indefinite if stored properly. Cap safety color code: Brown.
Miscible with water, alcohol, glycerol and ether. Insoluble in carbon disulfide.
Pungent odor; like vinegar.
Safety Purchase Suggestion: Buy and store only small package sizes and small quantities. Please consider buying PVC (polyvinyl chloride)–coated acid bottle—Flinn Plas-Pak™. Catalog No. A0007 is in a PVC-coated bottle. 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.
