Detailed Product Description:


Sulfuric Acid (also spelled “Sulphuric”) is a colorless, dense, oily liquid with


a pungent odor. Noncombustible. Soluble in water. Very reactive. Mixing


with water generates exothermic reaction that cause significant temperature


rise in solution. Corrosive to most metals. Most commonly used for electrolytes


and metal cleaning.







Sulfuric acid reacts with most metals via a single displacement reaction to produce


hydrogen gas and the metal sulfate.  Dilute H2SO4 attacks iron, aluminum, zinc,


manganese, magnesium and nickel, but reactions with tin and copper require the


acid to be hot and concentrated.  Lead and tungsten, however, are resistant to


sulfuric acid.  The reaction with iron is typical for most of these metals, but the


reaction with tin is unusual in that it produces sulfur dioxide rather than hydrogen.





As an acid, sulfuric acid reacts with most bases to give the corresponding sulfate


(e.g., copper(II) sulfate).  







This is from Air Products and is semiconductor grade, high purity and


controlled for low particulate levels.







The corrosive properties of sulfuric acid are accentuated by its highly exothermic


reaction with water. Therefore, skin burns from sulfuric acid are potentially more


serious than those of comparable strong acids (e.g. hydrochloric or nitric acid), as


there is additional tissue damage due to dehydration and particularly due to the


heat liberated by the reaction with moisture in the tissue.  The danger is obviously


greater with more concentrated preparations of sulfuric acid, but even the normal


laboratory "dilute" grade (approx. 1 M, 10%) will char paper by dehydration. 




Download the Material Safety Data Sheet for this material and understand


the dangers and precautions listed before using this substance.




Strong irritant to eyes and skin. Toxic by inhalation and ingestion. 





Use caution in mixing with water due to significant exothermic reaction


that can cause boiling and/or explosive spattering. Always add acid to


water and not the reverse.
