Sulfuric acid (H2SO4) is a strong mineral acid composed of sulfur, oxygen, and hydrogen elements. In higher concentrations, sulfuric acid is a clear, colorless to cloudy, oily liquid that has no odor.
Sulfuric acid, a very strong acid, is an oxidizing agent, and reacts readily at high temperatures with many metals, carbon, sulfur, and other substances.
Concentrated sulfuric acid is also a strong dehydrating agent, combining violently with water. When combined with water, this acid will char many organic materials, such as wood, paper, or sugar, leaving a carbonaceous residue.
This acid is one of the most vital compounds the chemical industry produces. Industrial uses of sulfuric acid are immeasurable. Manufacturers of many chemicals use sulfuric acid to manufacture their products, including hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, sulfate salts, artificial detergents, dyes and pigments, explosives, and drugs.
Some call this the king of chemicals. Manufacturers use sulfuric acid to make hundreds of compounds needed in almost every industry.
