I tried this today and the flask rapidly fielld up with acid vapour so I put´╗┐ the flask in an ice bath and let the H2SO4 drip in slowly. When I came back, the sodium acetate hadn't dissolved at all. Now I'm stuck with solid undissolved soldium acetate mixed with H2SO4. I tried heating it up but it still wont dissolve.
