It is true that glacial acetic acid is called that becasuse
you can get it to freeze., but the name carries more
information than that.

Pardon all on the control H's, but I su usually compose off-
line. Our interface is user-abusive.
Glacial acetic acid implies a high level of purity and being
anhydrous. To prove the point back in the dark ages when I took
organic chemistry, we had a demonstract
demonstration is in s which we took about 10mls of glacial
acetic acid in a test tube and swirled the tube in an ice bath
and watched it freeze. If we added ONE DROP of water to the
test tube, t we could not get it to refreeze.
