Synthesis / Manufacturing Process of Acetates
The major raw material to all the acetates is Glacial Acetic Acid. Acetic Acid was initially prepared by aerobic fermentation of Ethanol. Ethanol was catalytically oxidised to Acetaldehyde, which in turn oxidised to Acetic Acid. Today Acetic Acid is prepared by carbonylating methanol to Acetic Acid in presence of a catalyst.
All the inorganic Acetates are manufactured by reacting Glacial Acetic Acid with their Hydroxides. This is Acid-Base neutralization reaction.
