Mordant used in varying dilution as the etching agent for copper or zinc plates.
One of the acids in acid rain. Formed by reactions between nitrogen oxides and the water vapor in the atmosphere.
Used in emulsion manufacture, in toners, and in bleaches, it is highly corrosive.
(HNO3) Corrosive acid used in the manufacture of explosives and fertilizers. It is a very destructive liquid and will destroy many minerals.
A clear or brown liquid that is corrosive and toxic. At room temperature it gives off red or yellow fumes. Nitric acid is used as a laboratory reagent, and in the manufacture of explosives like nitroglycerin and TNT.
a strong, colorless or yellowish liquid oxidant that is highly corrosive and a potential fire hazard. This acid is prepared by the action of sulfuric acid on nitrates and by the oxidation of ammonia. Nitric acid is used to clean silicon wafers and etch metals.
acid used especially in the production of fertilizers and explosives and rocket fuels
A colourless or yellowish fuming corrosive liquid.
Known to alchemists as aqua fortis (strong water), was one of the first strong mineral acids to be discovered. It was obtained by distilling together saltpetre (potassium nitrate) and green vitriol (iron sulphate) or alum (potassium aluminium sulphate). Nitric acid could be used to separate silver from gold, as silver dissolves in the acid while gold does not. Today it is used in many chemical processes, particularly in the making of nitrate-based fertilisers.
a component of acid rain; corrosive; damages buildings, vehicle surfaces, crops, forests, and aquatic life.
A strong acid formed in the atmosphere by chemical reactions with nitrogen dioxide. Introduction Task Process Information resources Guidance Dr. Bravo Ms. Alarcón Dr. Sosa Dr. Soto Mr. Sanchez
A liquid oxidizer that reacts spontaneously with hydrazine. Also see IRFNA and IWFNA.
A highly corrosive, colorless liquid that emits choking fumes into air. A diluted solution is used to clean the gold-bearing concentrates before amalgamation, and also to clean mercury that has become dirty. (See Aqua Regia).
chemical formula HNO3, nitric acid a relatively strong acid primarily used as part of the aluminum etch. Nitric acid is commonly sold as a 70% solution and has a density of 1.42Kg/L. Nitric acid burns on contact with skin or eyes and the vapors will irritate or burn eyes or lungs.
A basic chemical that is made from ammonia by catalytic combustion. An important intermediale in fertilizer manufacture.
A clear, fuming, highly corrosive liquid that is often used clean gold of various impurities.
A toxic, corrosive, colorless liquid used to make fertilizers, dyes, explosives, and other chemicals.
(HNO3) aqua fortis. A corrosive liquid with a sharp odor that acts as a strong acid when dissolved in water. Nitric acid is used to synthesize ammonium nitrate for fertilizers, and is also used in the manufacture of explosives, dyes, and pharmaceuticals. Salts of nitric acid are called nitrates.
formerly referred to nitrogen dioxide, NO2 [ Avogadro, Dalton, Gay-Lussac, Lavoisier et al.] or nitrogen pentoxide, N2O5 [ Prout
A highly corrosive chemical that forms as a byproduct of the ozone generating process. Nitric acid is produced in very small quantities and is readily dissolved in the water stream with ozone.
The chemical compound nitric acid (HNO3), also known as aqua fortis and spirit of nitre, is an aqueous solution of hydrogen nitrate (anhydrous nitric acid). It is a highly corrosive and toxic acid that can cause severe burns. Colorless when pure, older samples tend to acquire a yellow cast due to the accumulation of oxides of nitrogen.
