Grades of Sulfuric Acid

There are many different types of commercial products available, typically with concentrations ranging from 1% to 98%. Purer solutions can be synthesised, but are difficult to store as loss of SO3 quickly drops the concentration to 98%.

Common formulations include

  • Dilute sulfuric acid with concentrations up to 10% (up to 1M)
  • Battery acid (for lead-acid batteries) with concentrations around 30%
  • Chamber acid and fertiliser acid with concentrations around 60-70% (10M)
  • Tower acid with 80% concentration
  • Concentrated and ultra-pure sulphuric acid with 96-98% concentration

Tower acid and chamber acid solutions are now obsolete, but can still be prepared in the lab if needed. In particular, chamber acid (10M) are commonly used in titrations.

These solutions were synthesised in the “lead chamber process,” with chamber acid being generated in the chamber itself. This solution had a concentration of just below 70% to prevent contamination with nitrosylsulphuric acid. In contrast, tower acid was recovered at the bottom of the Glover tower and had a higher concentration.

In addition, sulphuric acid can be sold with different purity levels, from technical grade, which is an impure form suitable to make fertilisers; to laboratory and analytical grades, suitable to use in the pharmaceutical industry.
