Hydrochloric Acid in the Production of Organic Compounds
Hydrochloric acid is an important reagent in many industrial processes, including the synthesis of inorganic and organic compounds.
One of these examples is the synthesis of vinyl chloride and dichloromethane to be used in the manufacture of PVC. The hydrochloric acid used in this process is often produced in the same manufacturing plant and never actually reaches the market.
Other organic compounds include:
- Ascorbic acid
- Activated carbon (from wood and HCl)
- Bisphenol A (for polycarbonate)
- And many other chemicals, mainly pharmaceutical products
Hydrochloric Acid in the Production of Inorganic Compounds
In addition, numerous inorganic compounds can be synthesised using hydrochloric acid, mainly via acid-base reactions. These include, for example, the production of polyaluminium chloride (PAC) and iron(III) chloride, which are common flocculation and coagulation agents in sewage and water treatment plants, as well as paper mills.
Fe2O3 6 HCl → 2 FeCl3 3 H2O
Other inorganic compounds include:
- Calcium chloride (road salt)
- Zinc chloride for galvanising and batteries
- Nickel chloride for electroplating
