May the horseradish used for maror be put in vinegar after grating it on Erev Yom Tov and still be used for the mitzvah?
My understanding is that it may not be done.
Is that the case? If so, how do you prevent the horseradish from becoming oxidized (brown) by the seder?

No, it can not be used because if it's in vinegar for longer than 24 hours it's considered cooked. And even less than that is not good since the surface is "cooked".
Buy Mason Jars - they are airtight and excellent for this. Walmart/Target/etc sell them by the case and they are pretty cheap - about $1 per jar.
