Sulfuric Acid is an inorganic chemical compound. It is a strong acids, composed of sulfur, oxygen and hydrogen elements. Sulfuric Acid does not occur in nature – because of its affinity for water vapor. It is obtained synthetically – on an industrial scale, by the conventional contact process of oxidation of sulfur dioxide. The process can be divided into three stages: the generation of sulfur dioxide, its oxidation to sulfur trioxide, and then the absorption of sulfur trioxide to oleum, which is then diluted with water to form concentrated Sulfuric Acid. As a food additive, it is referred to as E513.

Technical aspects

Sulfuric Acid is very reactive and corrosive. It acts as a catalyst, dehydrating agent or pH regulator.

Alternative names: E513, oil of vitriol, hydrogen sulfate, H2SO4.

The most common use of Sulfuric Acid is to participate in the production of fertilizers. It acidifies water and provides improved soil quality and increased plant growth. It is usually used in the production of superphosphates, ammonium phosphate and ammonium sulfates.

Sulfuric Acid is also widely used in the chemical industry. It is involved in the production of detergents, plastics and other acids such as hydrochloric acid, nitric acid and phosphoric acid. In the petrochemical industry, it is involved in the purification of oils and kerosene.

In industrial processes, Sulfuric Acid is a PH regulator used for water treatment. It removes solid particles with chemicals such as ferric chloride, polymers, and alums, and returns the water to a neutral pH. In addition, Sulfuric Acid is applied as an electrolyte in the production of batteries, in the production of dyes, such as titanium white, and in mining and metallurgy it is used in the enrichment of copper ore.
