• synthesis
  • Commonly abbreviated Ac2O, it is the simplest isolable anhydride of a carboxylic acid and is widely used as a reagent in organic synthesis. (wikipedia.org)
  • In starch industry, acetic anhydride is a common acetylation compound, used for the production of modified starches (E1414, E1420, E1422) Because of its use for the synthesis of heroin by the diacetylation of morphine, acetic anhydride is listed as a U.S. DEA List II precursor, and restricted in many other countries.

  • vinyl acetate
  • Also, the budding demand for vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), which is employed as an intermediate for the production of vinyl acetate (co) polymers & monomers, ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymers, and ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) resins, is expected to influence the acetic acid market. (marketsandmarkets.com)
  • Almost 31% of the total acetic acid demand was for vinyl acetate monomer applications in 2014, with the polyvinyl acetate for wood glue and automotive industry being the fastest-growing end-use segment, primarily due to high market reach in all regions. (micromarketmonitor.com)
  • ethanoic acid
  • Acetic acid /əˈsiːtɪk/, systematically named ethanoic acid /ˌɛθəˈnoʊɪk/, is a colourless liquid organic compound with the chemical formula CH3COOH (also written as CH3CO2H or C2H4O2). (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, butyl acetate (systematically butyl ethanoate), derived from butanol and acetic acid (systematically ethanoic acid) would be written CH3CO2C4H9. (wikipedia.org)
  • reaction
  • Maleic anhydride is a dienophile in the Diels-Alder reaction. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is a colorless liquid that smells strongly of acetic acid, which is formed by its reaction with moisture in the air. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the reaction of phthalic anhydride with sodium tetracarbonylferrate, only one of the carboxyl groups is reduced to the aldehyde, the second remains unchanged. (wikipedia.org)
  • With Grignard compounds, the hydroxy group can be exchanged for the corresponding alkyl or aryl group: In the presence of (+)-cinchonine, in the reaction of (racemic) 3-hydroxyphthalide with carboxylic acid anhydrides to the corresponding chiral 3-substituted phthalides anenantiomeric excess of up to 90% ee can be achieved besides high product yields. (wikipedia.org)
  • Functionalized isoindolinones are accessible in high yields in a three-component reaction with 2-formylbenzoic acid and 2-bromoanilines by palladium-catalyzed carbonylation. (wikipedia.org)
  • carbon
  • Carbonylation refers to reactions that introduce carbon monoxide into organic and inorganic substrates. (wikipedia.org)
  • The internal asymmetry may contribute to acetic anhydride's potent electrophilicity as the asymmetric geometry makes one side of a carbonyl carbon more reactive than the other, and in doing so tends to consolidate the electropositivity of a carbonyl carbon to one side (see electron density diagram). (wikipedia.org)
  • cellulose acetate
  • Acetic acid is one of the basic organic chemical raw materials mainly used in the production of cellulose acetate for photographic film and polyvinyl acetate for wood glue, as well as synthetic fibers and markets, and as a food additive code. (micromarketmonitor.com)
  • mainly
  • The acetic acid market is experiencing enormous growth which is expected to continue in the near future, mainly driven by the highly growing Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North America regions and the intense efforts at country level to promote environment-friendly and recyclable products.
