Homogeneous nucleation measurements on acetic acid vapor are reported. The presence of the relatively stable association clusters tends to stabilize the vapor with regard to homogeneous nucleation. The variation of the critical supersaturation with temperature for acetic acid vapor was found to agree well with the predictions of the Katz–Saltsburg–Reiss theory for nucleation in associated vapors.
