Making a 80% ethanol/ 20% glacial acetic acid solution - (May/03/2006 )


I was wondering if anyone could tell me how I would go about making a 80% ethanol / 20% glacial acetic acid solution. Because making them both separately and adding them together would not give the correct concentration, would it?



80 mL ethanol + 20 mL acetic acid smile.gif


actually, to be precise, 80ml of 100%ethanol and add 20ml of a solution of glacial acetic acid


Don't tell me you would use >99.9% GC standard! wink.gif
