Uses Of Sulfuric Acid

By far the largest amount of sulfuric acid is used to make phosphoric acid, used, in turn, to make the phosphate fertilizers,calcium dihydro gen phosphate and the ammonium phosphate

It is also used to make ammonium sulfate, which is a particularly important fertilizer in sulfur-deficient.It is widely used in metal processing for example in the manufacture of copper and the manufacture of zinc and in cleaning the surface of steel sheet,known as 'pickling', prior to it being covered in a thin layer of tin, used to make cans for food.

t is widely used in metal processing for example in the manufacture of copper and the manufacture of zinc and in cleaning the surface of steel sheet,known as 'pickling', prior to it being covered in a thin layer of tin, used to make cans for food.

It is also used to make caprolactam, which is converted into poly amide 6 and in the manufacture of titanium dioxide, used, for example, as a pigment.

Among stits many other uses is in the manufacture of hydrofluoric acid and phenol with pro panone all of which are used in many industries

Sulfuric acid is one of the most important industrial chemicals. More of it is made each year than is made of any other manufactured chemical; more than 40 million tons of it were produced in the United States in 1990. It has widely varied uses and plays some part in the production of nearly all manufactured goods. The major use of sulfuric acid is in the production of fertilizers, e.g., super phosphate of lime and ammonium sulfate. It is widely used in the manufacture of chemicals, e.g., in making hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, sulfate salts,synthetic detergents, dyes and pigments, explosives, and drugs. It is used in petroleum refining to wash impurities out of gasoline and other refinery products. Sulfuric acid is used in processing metals, e.g., in pickling(cleaning) iron and steel before plating them with tin or zinc. Rayon is made with sulfuric acid. It serves as the electrolyte in the lead-acid storage battery commonly used in motor vehicles (acid for this use, containing about33% H2SO4 and with specific gravity about 1.25, is often called battery acid).
