Nitric acid is a strongly corrosive mineral acid with a suffocating odor. It appears as a colorless liquid at room temperature but can appear yellow upon decomposition into oxides of nitrogen and water.
Our Lab/Technical grade Nitric Acid (69.8%) can be used in commercial applications and research labs, but due to its unknown impurities, it cannot be used in food items, drugs, and medicines.
It is considered the strongest acid due to its low pH and highly reducing nature.
These are ACS Regent grade acids typically used for making Aqua regia.
Directions for making Aqua Regia:
PLACE YOUR GOLD IN A BREAKER WITH THE HYDROCHLORIC ACID
SLOWY ADD NITRIC ACID
STOP ADDING THE NITRIC WHEN YOUR REACTION STOPS
