What is Sulfuric Acid?

Sulfuric acid, a strong mineral acid, has the compound formula H2SO4. It is a corrosive chemical substance due to its dehydration feature and strong acidic structure. In addition, it is one of the most produced and used chemicals in the chemical industry.

It is known colloquially as battery acid. Since it is an acid that can dissolve in water and conduct electricity, it is a substance that produces high heat. Factories producing sulfuric acid by the tapping method benefit from this heat.

Konsantre haldeki sülfürik asitte kütlece maksimum %98 H2SO4 bulunmaktadır. Bu halde bulunan sülfürik asit suyla yakın özellik taşımakta ve birçok organik maddede bulunan suyu çekmektedir. Bu durum ekzotermik (ısıveren) reaksiyon göstermesine neden olur ve ciltle ve gözle teması durumunda yüksek ölçüde zarar vermektedir. Teması durumunda temaslı bölge acilen göz duşu ya da seyreltik bir baz ile temizlenmelidir. Su ile yıkanması ortaya ısı çıkmasına ve termal yanıklar oluşmasına neden olur. Bu yüzden sülfürik asidin seyreltme işlemi profesyonel ve titiz bir şekilde yapılmalıdır. Ve seyreltme işlemi yapılacağı zaman suyu aside değil, asidi suya eklemek gereklidir.

Adding large amounts of water to concentrated sulfuric acid is a dangerous process. Because in such a case, around 1 mole of sulfuric acid releases about 880 kJ of heat. This causes an exothermic reaction, causing bubbles to form on the surface of the water and causing the water to boil suddenly.

Apart from Earth, there is also sulfuric acid on the planet Venus. Thick clouds of sulfuric acid have been detected in the atmosphere of this planet, which subsequently condense and fall as rain on Venus.

Its freezing point is 10.5 C, and its boiling point is 337 C. Sulfuric acid decomposes slowly above 300°C.

How is sulfuric acid produced?

As a strong mineral acid soluble in water, sulfuric acid is produced in industry by the lead chamber or contact method.

Üretimin büyük bölümünde Kontakt metodu kullanılmaktadır ve bu yöntemle %98 ila %100’lük sülfürik asit üretilebilmektedir. Kontakt yönteminde ilk olarak kükürt dioksit üretilir. Ardından birtakım katalizörlerle kükürt dioksit oksitlenerek kükürt triokside dönüştürülür. Sonrasında kükürt trioksit ve suyun tepkimesiyle birlikte sülfürik asit ortaya çıkar. Ardından sülfürik asit çeşitli sanayii ve endüstrilerde kullanılır. İkinci olarak, kurşun odalar yöntemiyle sülfürik asit üretiminde ise maksimum %78’lik bir H2SO4 üretilebilmektedir.
