What is Sulfuric Acid?
Sulfuric acid, also called oil of vitriol, is a colorless and odorless corrosive liquid. It is a very strong inorganic acid with qualities that make it very useful for a number of industries. Its primary industrial use is to make phosphoric acid which is a main ingredient in most chemical fertilizers. Sulfuric acid is a critical component for metal manufacturing, particularly in the production of copper and zinc as well as the cleaning of steel. Other uses include detergents, lead-acid automobile batteries, and other chemicals such as hydrochloric acid, dye, explosives, pigments, and drugs. Concentrated sulfuric acid is a strongly acidic material that reacts rapidly with water, evolving considerable heat.
Sulfuric acid is corrosive, and contact can severely irritate and burn the skin and eyes and may lead to blindness. Inhaling sulfuric acid can irritate the nose, throat, and lungs. Higher exposures may cause a build-up of fluid in the lungs (pulmonary edema). Exposure can cause headache, nausea, and vomiting. Repeated exposure can cause permanent lung damage, damage to teeth, and upset stomach. In addition, sulfuric acid is reactive and a dangerous explosion hazard. It is not combustible, but it is a strong oxidizer that enhances the combustion of other substances.
