Chemical properties

Ammonium acetate, also known as azanium acetate, has the chemical formula C2H7NO2. This formula is sometimes written as C2H4O2.NH3 to highlight the presence of ammonia. This compound forms highly hygroscopic white crystals with a smell resembling vinegar. Its synthesis relies on ammonium carbonate or dry ammonia gas mixed acetic acid, but obtaining pure crystalline ammonium is extremely difficult as it easily loses ammonia.

Toxic compound

This product should be kept in a well-ventilated area and stored in its original container. In addition, when handling, safety measures must be in place to avoid accidents. Inhalation of this compound may irritate the eyes and nose, or even cause a mild burn to the skin. Mask, goggles and rubber gloves are advised during handling, especially when large amounts of dust may be produced. Complete safety measure can be found on the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) available from the website.


This compound can be used for many different applications, including as a fungicide and bactericide, as well as biodegradable de-icer. It also has some medical uses, such as in dialysis where it’s an important component of the protein purification system. Above all, it’s essential in many analytic processes, in its buffering capacity or with the ability to precipitate proteins from solution.
