Possible Interaction: Acetic Acid and Ammonia


Acetic Acid



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

We hypothesized that acetic acid enhanced the attractiveness of ammonia in the orchard test and that acetic acid may similarly enhance attractiveness of AMPu, an attractant consisting of a mixture of ammonium bicarbonate or ammonium carbonate, methylamine HCl, and putrescine.

These findings suggest that the synergistic effect of ammonia acts through an etiological mechanism different from that evoked by acetic acid pretreatment.

Weak bases (NH3 or Tris) stimulated sperm respiration, whereas a weak acid (acetic) inhibited sperm respiration rates at constant extracellular pH. Ammonia or speract counteracted the acetic acid inhibition, but speract failed to further stimulate spermatozoa in the presence of ammonia.

Therefore, acetic acid is approximately eight times more aversive than ammonia.
