Sulfuric acid acts as a catalyst and dehydrant. It is also serves as a source of protons during the esterification of salicylic acid with acetic anhydride.

The role of sulphuric acid in the synthesis of aspirin is of a catalyst, and it is also a source of protons for carrying out the esterification of salicylic acid with acetic anhydride.

It is an acid catalyst and a dehydrant. It is also hygroscopic and absorbs water. (Water is released in the synthesis of aspirin)
