Ammonium acetate is a chemical compound. As the salt of a weak acid and a weak base, ammonium acetate has a number of distinctive properties. It is occasionally employed as a biodegradable de-icing agent. It is often used with acetic acid to create a buffer solution, one that can be thermally decomposed to non-ionic products. It is useful in the Knoevenagel condensation in organic synthesis. It can be used with distilled water to make a protein precipitating reagent. It is often used as an aqueous buffer for ESI mass spectrometry of proteins and other molecules.
