Glacial acetic acid glacial is a colourless liquid that absorbs water from the air and freezes to a colourless crystalline solid at 16.7 degrees Celsius. It’s used as raw material and as a solvent in the production of various chemical products. Upon freezing, the acid forms needle-shaped crystals, which is where the acid gets its name from.
