Persistence Market Research Pvt. Ltd is released new forthcoming report on title "Sulphuric Acid Market: Global Industry analysis and Forecast to 2020".


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/19/2015 -- Sulfuric acid also known as 'oil of vitriol' having molecular formula H2SO4 is a highly strong corrosive mineral acid. Sulfuric acid is pungent-ethereal, colorless to slightly yellow viscous liquid soluble in water at all concentrations. During production, sulfuric acid takes dyed dark brown color to intimate people of its strong hazard effects. Sulfuric acid shows different properties with different material depending on the concentration. Having strong acidic nature, sulfuric acid can harm materials such as metals, living tissues even stones at strong concentration. Sulfuric acid at high concentration can cause serious damage to eye as it burns the cornea of the eye causing permanent blindness if splashed into the eye.
