A dense, colorless liquid chemical used extensively to leach stockpiles of copper ore. Sulfuric acid is primarily produced as a by-product of smelting, but it may also be generated by other means. Sulfuric acid is contained in â€œraffinateâ€, which is the bleed stream from the solution extraction process, diluted to create a slightly acidic water called raffinate. The water percolates through the stockpile, dissolving copper minerals contained in the rock. This copper laden water called PLS (pregnant leach solution) exits from the bottom of the stockpile and flows to a collection pond.
(H2SO4) oil of vitriol; sulphuric acid. An oily, corrosive liquid that acts as a strong acid when dissolved in water. Sulfuric acid has so many industrial uses that sulfuric acid production was once used as an index of industrial productivity. Salts of sulfuric acids are called sulfates.
chemical formula H2SO4, sulfuric acid is primarily used to strip photoresist as part of a sulfuric acid - hydrogen peroxide mixture. Sulfuric acid will strip photoresist on it's own but carbon, C, build up in the bath. The addition of hydrogen peroxide, H2O2, volatizes the carbon from the bath as carbon dioxide, CO2, and carbon monoxide, CO. Sulfuric acid is commonly sold as a 98% solution and has a density of 1.84Kg/L. Sulfuric acid burns on contact with skin or eyes and the vapors will irritate or burn eyes or lungs.
A toxic, corrosive, strongly acid, and colorless liquid. It is used for phosphoric acid production. Other uses include the manufacture of explosives, plastics, and batteries, as well as the purification of petroleum.
Strong acid, formula H2SO4, formed as the end product in the oxidation of most sulfur compounds. Sulfuric acid is a major constituent of acid rain associated with fossil fuel combustion. As a consequence of its low volatility, it can lead to particle formation, and is a major constituent of cloud condensation nuclei and the background aerosol, including the stratospheric sulfate layer.
Sulfuric acid (British English: sulphuric acid), H2SO4, is a strong mineral acid. It is soluble in water at all concentrations. It was once known as oil of vitriol, coined by the 8th-century Alchemist Jabir ibn Hayyan, the chemical's probable discovererKhairallah, Amin A.
