Hydrochloric Acid HCL
Hydrochloric acid >36%w/v Fuming 11.64mol/dcm3
(> 95% Purity)
Hydrochloric acid is a clear, colourless, highly pungent solution of hydrogen chloride (HCl) in water. It is a highly corrosive, strong mineral acid with many industrial uses
Hydrochloric acid is produced in solutions up to 38% HCl (concentrated grade). Higher concentrations up to just over 40% are chemically possible, but the evaporation rate is high
Industrial-grade is 30% to 34. Higher concentrations require the material to be pressurized and cooled to reduce evaporation losses.
Used to adjust pH in laboratory buffer solutions and as a general laboratory reagent. HCL is ubiquitous in its uses.
Concentrated hydrochloric acid (fuming hydrochloric acid) forms acidic mists. Both the mist and the solution have a corrosive effect on human tissue, with the potential to damage respiratory organs, eyes, skin, and intestines irreversibly. Upon mixing hydrochloric acid with common oxidizing chemicals,
