About Perchloric Acid 0.1M in Glacial Acetic Acid

With the formula HClO4, perchloric acid is an inorganic acid forming a colourless solution stronger than nitric and sulphuric acid. Industrially, this compound is used to prepare ammonium perchlorate, which is used as a rocket fuel.

How is it produced?

Perchloric Acid 0.1M in Glacial Acetic Acid can be synthesised industrially by two different routes:

  • Reaction with hydrochloric acid: The more traditional method involves mixing sodium perchlorate (NaClO4) and hydrochloric acid (HCl) to generate perchloric acid (HClO4) and precipitate sodium chloride (NaCl):NaClO4 HCl → NaCl HClO4
  • Oxidation of chlorine: This alternative process avoids the synthesis of salts by oxidation of chlorine using a platinum electrode.

What is perchloric acid used for?

As mentioned, perchloric acid is a common ingredient in the process to manufacture ammonium perchlorate, used as a rocket fuel. But there are also many other applications, including:

  • Etching of liquid crystal displays
  • Etching of molybdenum, aluminium and other elements
  • Electronic applications
  • Analytical chemistry
  • Ore extraction
  • Ion-exchange chromatography

How safe is perchloric acid?

Due to its strong acidic and oxidising properties, safe procedures to handle this chemical must be in place. It’s also highly reactive in the presence of organic matter and metals, so work with this chemicals must be conducted in fume hoods by trained staff only.
