An acid catalyst is used can be in many forms such as sulfuric acid or ion-exchange resin.

sulfuric acid s usd as oxidant..............

Sulphuric acid is used in the manufacture of fertilisers (superphosphates) and as a battery acid.

It is used used as a catalyst in the industrial production of many chemicals.

Sulphuric acid used in this experiment was used only as a catalyst. So, it is not consumed.

Iron is one example of a catalyst, used in ammonia synthesis. Nitrogen oxide and platinum are another example, used in sulfuric acid manufacturing.

Yes, sulphuric acid is a very useful chemical. It can be used to manufacture fertlilsers (superphosphates) and is also used as a battery acid in cars.

The concentrated sulphuric acid solution is the preferred catalyst for the preparation of esters. Rarely used is the hydrochloric acid as a gas.

Sulfuric acid is used as a catalyst in the reaction, so if it was not included the reaction would either occur at a greatly reduced rate or not at all.

depends upon what the catalyst is used on such as H2SO4 is used generally for substitution reactions which require sulfuric acid to convert and supplement hydrogen into the reaction for the product to take place.

Lead chamber process produce sulfuric acid by the reactionSO2 + NO2 + H2O → H2SO4 + NOProcess flow diagram shows how the lead lined chamber are used to convert so2 to sulfuric acid, source:

Yes, BUT... Liquid SO3 is HIGHLY reactive and not readily available. Pure SO3 reacts readily (and violently) with water or sulfuric acid. To manufacture sulfuric acid, dilute gaseous SO3 is absorbed in sulfuric acid to increase the concentration of the acid. 100% sulfuric acid can still absorb more SO3. When extra SO3 is dissolved in 100% H2SO4 (sulfuric acid) the solution is called oleum or fuming sulfuric acid. In general, oleum is used when free SO3 is required.

Yes, sulfuric acid is used in clothing manufacture. This acid finds use in the making of dyes for fabrics, and it is used directly to make rayon and some other synthetic materials used to weave fabric which is used to make clothing. Sulfuric acid finds its largest use in manufacturing agricultural fertilizers, but H2SO4 is produced by the tank car load on a daily basis in industrialized countries around the world. And phosphate detergents are manufactured by the ton using this industrial chemical. That means that those clothes that might not be directly touched by products from the acid during manufacture will be swimming with the products of the acid on the flip side.

Sulfuric acid is usually kept in glass containers.

The elements in the middle section of the Periodic Table are the transition in the Haber process; Nickel is a catalyst used in the manufacture of margarine.

Sulfuric acid is an acid that is used in the science of Chemistry. Sulfuric acid can be purchased from companies such as "Science Company" but is also available for purchase from Amazon.

Yes. SO3+H2O->H2SO4 Additionally a catalyst such as V2O5 (Vanadium Pentoxide) is used in the process.

Sulfuric acid is the electrolyte used forlead-acid batteries (accumulators)Sulfuric acid is used in the production of fertilizers such as ammonium sulfate (sulfate of ammonia), (NH4)2SO4, and superphosphate,Sulfuric acid is used to clean oxides from iron or steel prior to galvanising or electroplatingConcentrated sulfuric acid (18M) is used as a dehydrating agentSulfuric acid is also used for drying neutral and acidic gases such as N2, O2, CO2 and SO2Sulfuric acid suck water out of carbohydrates and other organic compounds that contain oxygen and hydrogen.Sulfuric acid is used in the production of nitroglycerine, an inorganic ester & organic nitrate,It is also used as a vasodilator, a substance that dilates blood vessels and can be used in the treatment of certain types of heart disease:

Yes sulfuric acid is used in manufacturing of plastics, rubber and fertilizers.

Yes. ^ Well to improve on this, in simple terms. A catalyst is something that brings on the reaction, in this case the liquid catalyst can only contain a little amount of water otherwise side reactions will occur and this would impact (reduce) the yield of aspirin - not good, sulfuric acid is usually used because it is 98% pure, phosphoric acid can also be used but it is only about 85% pure, still OK. HCL in its most concentrated form is only 37% pure and there fore no good at all. In a shorter to the point answer, H2SO4 is a pure catalyst which will give you a close to accurate yield of aspirin.

The fluorescence of quinine is stronger in sulfuric acid solutions.

Sulfur dioxide from industry and car exhaust combines with the water in clouds to form sulfuric acid. Sulfuric acid bubbled into water produces sulfuric acid, and this method is even used in the production of sulfuric acid, known as the contact process. This process basically occurs nearly the same way in the clouds, and the resulting acid falls as acid rain.
