Sulfuric acid, spent


Sulfuric acid (American spelling) or sulphuric acid (Commonwealth spelling), also known as oil of vitriol, is a mineral acid composed of the elements sulfur, oxygen and hydrogen, with molecular formula H2SO4. It is a colorless, odorless and viscous liquid that is miscible with water at all concentrations.The acid in pure form is highly corrosive towards other materials, as it is an oxidant and has a strong acidic nature. Additionally the pure acid is highly dehydrating, which means it will strip water away from any substance it comes into contact with (except phosphorus pentoxide that dehydrates sulfuric acid to sulfur trioxide). It is also hygroscopic, readily absorbing water vapor from the air. Wikipedia
