Sulphur is a mineral acid, and when it reacts with water in the presence of a catalyst it produces sulphur dioxide gas. The reaction of sulphur dioxide with aluminium oxide produces the odourless, white crystalline compound known as Aluminium sulphate (Al2(SO4)3).
Sulfuric acid is a strong mineral acid, and it is soluble in water at all concentrations. It is also corrosive to other substances such as metals and rocks. Sulphuric acid is widely used in the manufacture of phosphoric acid and fertilisers, and as a dehydrating agent.
The chemical formula for sulphuric acid is H2SO4. It is an oily liquid that is viscous in nature and is soluble in water and it is a component of acid rain.
Sulfuric acid is a very common industrial chemical, with a wide range of end applications including domestic drain cleaners, electrolyte in lead-acid batteries and as a dehydrating agent. It is also used in the production of a range of chemicals, and in the synthesis of dyes, drugs and detergents. It is produced in a number of ways, including the contact process and the wet sulfuric acid process. It is a critical part of the chemical industry, and it is essential for various chemical synthesis processes. It is also used in the wastewater treatment and mineral processing industries. It is a highly toxic substance and should be handled with care. It can cause skin burns and injuries if it is inhaled or ingested.
