Hi Debbie,

I store my acetic anhydride with Containerseal XL over the cap/bottle junction in a corrosives storage cabinet with acetic acid, but no oxidizing acids.

Stay Safe,

I store my acetic anhydride in a corrosives storage cabinet, with each bottle tightly closed and sealed with tape.

We've all been way down the rabbit hole around here without good consensus.
