Chemical and Physical Properties
- Name: Hydrochloric acid
- Other names: muriatic acid, hydrogen chloride
- Molecular formula: HCl
- Molecular weight: 36.4
- Appearance: Colourless solution with a pungent irritating smell
- Boiling point: -85.05 degree Celsius at 760 mm Hg (-121 Fahrenheit)
- Melting point: -114.22 degree Celsius (-174 Fahrenheit)
- Solubility: soluble in water, methanol and ethanol, ether
- Density: 1,00045 g/l
- Stability: high thermal stability
- Corrosivity: highly corrosive, with flammable hydrogen emitted when in contact with air. Can attack some plastics and rubber.
- Reactions: Hydrochloric acid can react violently with bases and strong oxidisers, resulting in the release of toxic chlorine gas.
- Method of production: This acid can be obtained from four sources: (1) as a by-product of the oxychlorination or oxyhydrochlorination of organic compounds; (2) via the Manheim process, involving reaction between sulphuric acid and salt; (3) via the Hargreaves process, involving a reaction between salt, sulphur dioxide, oxygen and water and (4) by burning hydrogen gas and chlorine. The first method accounts for the vast majority of hydrochloric acid produced (around 90%), while the remaining methods represent only niche applications.
