    Sulfuric acid (H2SO4) is a strong acid with a hygroscopic, and oxidation properties. Sulfuric acid is a mineral acid with the chemical formula H2SO4.

    Sulfuric acid is also known as the Mattling acid or vitriol oil. It has a strong acidic nature, and are corrosive. At the same time, it acts as an oxidizing agent, and the dehydrator at a higher concentration. It is a syrup-like liquid with no odor or color. It is a water-soluble, and can generate heat when it is dissolved in the water. It is widely used in the fertilizer production. It is also used in chemical synthesis and in the purification of wastewater treatment processes.

    Anhydrous sulphuric acid, has a dielectric constant of about 100, and many of them are polar liquids. This is perhaps one of the most important heavy industry, chemicals, there will be a large-scale application of a broad spectrum of industries.
