Ammonium Acetate is a white crystalline solid. The primary hazard of ammonium acetate is the threat it brings to the environment. Immediate steps should be taken to limit its spread to the environment. It is used in chemical analysis, in pharmaceuticals, in preserving foods, and for other uses.

 

Manufacturing Process

 

There are 2 methods to manufacture ammonium acetate:

 

Method 1: Neutralisation reaction between ammonium carbonate with acetic acid

Method 2: Saturating glacial acetic acid with ammonia

Chemical Industry:

 

  • Used to create buffer solution upon mixing with weak acids.
  • Used to separate lead sulfate from other sulfates.

 

Food Industry: Ammonium acetate is used as a food additive as an acidity regulator.

 

Other Applications:
