A complex, hypothetical radical, composed of two parts of carbon to three of hydrogen and one of oxygen. Its hydroxide is acetic acid.
Engineered copolymer plastic used widely in water valves and pumps where resistance to abrasion, high strength, and high temperatures are critical. Also highly resistant to many chemical solutions.
the organic group of acetic acid (CH3CO-)
Any chemical compound with an acetate group.
Chemical group derived from acetic acid. Acetyl groups are important in metabolism and often added as a covalent modification of proteins.
Coenzyme A: Acetyl coenzyme A is a chief precursor of lipids. It is formed by an acetyl group attaching itself to coenzyme A during the oxidation of amino acids, fatty acids, or pyruvate.
In organic chemistry, acetyl, sometimes called ethanoyl, is a functional group, the acyl of acetic acid, with chemical formula -COCH3. It is sometimes abbreviated as Ac (not to be confused with the element actinium). The acetyl radical contains a methyl group single-bonded to a carbonyl.
