Acetic acid is the simplest carboxylic acid, which means the hydrogen in the centre of the carboxyl group (-COOH) can be ionised according to the reaction:
CH3CO2H → CH3CO2- H
Due to this release of protons (H ), this compound has an acidic nature in solution, although it’s usually classed as a weak acid. For example, vinegar has a pH at around 2-2.5 and less than 1% of the acetic acid molecules are dissociated.
Acetic acid in solution behaves as a polar solvent, similar to water and ethanol. It can dissolve polar compounds, including inorganic sugars and salts; as well as non-polar compounds, including chemicals containing iodine and sulphur. It can easily mix with other solvents, such as water, hexane or chloroform and it’s a popular solvent used in many industrial processes.
Acetic acid follows all standard reactions involving carboxylic acids. In the presence of a base, it can be converted to acetate and water; reduction reactions generate ethanol and esters of acetic acid can be synthesised by esterification. In most cases, the –OH group is the most reactive site.
Popular with students around the world, the ‘baking soda and vinegar reaction’ must be one of the most common reactions used to teach chemistry.
NaHCO3 CH3COOH → CH3COONa CO2 H2O
