NH4C2H3O2 is occasionally employed as a biodegradable de-icing agent. Ammonium acetate is useful as a catalyst in the Knoevenagel condensation and as a source of ammonia in the Borch reaction in organic synthesis.
As a protein precipitating reagent.
In dialysis as part of a protein purification step to remove contaminants via diffusion.
In agricultural chemistry used as reagent for determination of soil CEC (Cation Exchange Capacity ) and determination of available potassium in soil, the ammonium ion acts as a replacement cation
Ammonium acetate is also used as a food additive as an acidity regulator; INS number 264.
