acetic acid
CH3COOH, a short-chain, saturated fatty acid, the characteristic component of vinegar and one of the principal acids formed in the rumen by fermentation. It has the odor of vinegar and a sharp acid taste. A 36.5% solution of acetic acid is used topically as a caustic and rubefacient. A dilute acetic acid solution (6%) may be used as an antidote to alkali, e.g. in urea poisoning in cattle where the urea is converted to ammonia in the rumen. Glacial acetic acid is a 99.4% solution.
