Chemical Properties

Formula Weight
Melting point
200° dec.
Soluble in water, alcohol, dilute mineral acids and alkalies.


Zinc acetate anhydrous is used in the synthesis of layered Zn-arylphosphonates with potential application in sorption, ion exchange or catalysis. It is utilized in the ultrasonic preparation of zinc sulfide nanoparticles coated on silica particles. It is administered orally or parenterally as a nutritional supplement. It finds an application in the field of industries such as wood preservation, manufacturing other zinc salts, polymers, manufacture of ethylene acetate, as a dye mordant, and analytical reagent. It also acts as a plating inhibitor on primary water piping.


Incompatible with zinc salts, alkalies and their carbonates, oxalates, phosphates, and sulfides. Hygroscopic in nature.
