Acetic acid is less polar than water and can help in achieving proper wetting of slightly hydrophobic silicon wafers. Acetic acid has a lower dielectric constant than water (6.15 for CH3COOH versus 81 for H2O). This produces less dissociation of the HNO3 and yields a higher oxidation power for the etch.
