Sulfuric Acid, 37%, 500 ml
Chemical Name:
Sulfuric Acid Battery Electrolyte
CAS Number:
Chemical Formula:

Detailed Product Description:

This is a specific dilution of sulfuric acid in deionized water for use in

traditional lead/acid batteries.  No further dilution is necessary.



This dilution is comprised of 37% (w/w) of semiconductor grade

sulfuric acid (minimum 99.9% purity)  in 18-Meg-Ohm-Cm deionized water.



Sulfuric Acid (also spelled “Sulphuric”) is a colorless, dense, oily liquid with

a pungent odor.  Noncombustible.  Soluble in water.  Very reactive.  Mixing

with water generates exothermic reaction that cause significant temperature

rise in solution. Corrosive to most metals.  Most commonly used for electrolytes

and metal cleaning.



The corrosive properties of sulfuric acid are accentuated by its highly exothermic

reaction with water.  Therefore, skin burns from sulfuric acid are potentially more

serious than those of comparable strong acids (e.g. hydrochloric or nitric acid), as

there is additional tissue damage due to dehydration and particularly due to the

heat liberated by the reaction with moisture in the tissue.  The danger is obviously

greater with more concentrated preparations of sulfuric acid, but even the normal

laboratory "dilute" grade (approx. 1 M, 10%) will char paper by dehydration.
