Acetic acid in the chemical's use dates back to ancient times. In the 3rd century BC, Greece acetate philosopher Theophrastus described how reacts with the metal on the fine art of pigments to be used, including white lead (lead carbonate), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (mixture of copper salts including copper). 8th century Persian Alchemist Jabir, concentrated by distillation of acetic acid in the vinegar.

During the Renaissance, glacial acetic acid prepared by metal salts of acetic acid distillation. In 16th century Germany Alchemist andelieyasi·libafeiwusi describes this method, and glacial acetic acid produced by this method compared with derived from acetic acid. Just because the presence of water, leads to acetic acid in the nature of such a change, that, in a few centuries, chemists think they are two distinct things. France chemists Mundi (Pierre Adet) proves that they are both the same.

In 1847, Germany scientists adaofu·weilian·heerman·keerbei by inorganic acid was synthesized for the first time. The reaction of course first of all is a chloride into carbon tetrachloride of carbon disulfide, followed by hydrolysis after high temperature decomposition of tetrachloroethylene, and chloride, trichloroacetic acid, final step produced through electrolytic reduction of acetic acid.

By 1910, most glacial acetic acid extracts obtained by dry distillation of wood tar. First of all is the distillation of coal tar by calcium hydroxide treatment, and formation of calcium sulfate acidic, get one of acetic acid. During this period, Germany produced about 10000 tons of glacial acetic acid, of which 30% are used to make indigo dye
