Glacial Acetic acid (GAA), systematically named ethanoic acid, also named Acetic acid, is an acidic, colourless liquid and organic compound.  Mainly used in the manufacture of acetate, cellulose acetate, medicine, pigments, esters, plastics, spices.

Acetic acid is the second simplest carboxylic acid (after formic acid). It is an important chemical reagent and industrial chemical, used primarily in the production of cellulose acetate for photographic film, polyvinyl acetate for wood glue, and synthetic fibres and fabrics. In households, diluted acetic acid is often used in descaling agents. In the food industry, acetic acid is controlled by the food additive code E260 as an acidity regulator and as a condiment. In biochemistry, the acetyl group, derived from acetic acid, is fundamental to all forms of life. When bound to coenzyme A, it is central to the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats.
