  • Nitric acid (HNO3), also known as aqua fortis and spirit of nitre, is a highly corrosive and toxic strong acid that can cause severe burns.
  • The synthesis of nitric acid was first recorded circa 800 AD by the alchemist Jabir ibn Hayyan.
  • Colorless when pure, older samples tend to acquire a yellow cast due to the accumulation of oxides of nitrogen.
  • If the solution contains more than
    86% nitric acid, it is referred to as fuming nitric acid.
  • Fuming nitric acid is characterized as white fuming nitric acid and red fuming nitric acid, depending on the amount of nitrogen dioxide present.
  • A solution of nitric acid and alcohol, Nital, is used for etching of metals to reveal the microstructure.
  • Nitric acid is also used in explosives, and is one of the key components of Nitroglycerin and RDX.
  • In a low concentration, nitric acid is often used to artificially age pine and maple. The color produced is a grey-gold very much like very old wax or oil finished wood.
  • Nitric acid is made by mixing nitrogen dioxide (NO2) with water in the presence of oxygen or air to oxidize the nitrous acid also produced by the reaction.
  • Commercial grade nitric acid solutions are usually between 52% and 68% nitric acid. Commercial production of nitric acid is via the Ostwald process, named after Wilhelm Ostwald.
  • The acid can also be synthesized by oxidizing ammonia, but the product is diluted by the water also formed as part of the reaction.
  • Merchant Research & Consulting Ltd (UK) consulting agency says that the current global market for adipic acid is pretty well supplied, and the demand for industrial chemicals has been steadily growing.
  • The global demand for industrial chemicals based on nitric acid grows by an average of 7% per year.
  • In India, the market for concentrated nitric acid has been developing at a quick pace.
  • U.S. emissions of N2O from adipic and nitric acid production averaged around 37 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year.
  • Nitric acid is a powerful oxidizing agent, and the reactions of nitric acid with compounds such as cyanides, carbides, and metallic powders can be explosive.
