The history of sulphuric acid
Sulphuric acid was already known in ancient times. The earliest records of using this chemical date back to Greek physician Dioscorides during the first century AD and Roman philosopher Pliny the Elder. More practical applications in metallurgy appear in the treatise “Physica et mystica”, written by Zosimos of Panopolis.
In medieval Europe, sulphuric acid was commonly referred to as “oil of vitriol”, and it was prepared by roasting iron sulphate (green vitriol) in an iron retort. A few centuries later, sulphuric acid was prepared by burning sulphur and potassium nitrate (saltpeter, KNO3) in steam. As potassium nitrate decomposes, it starts to oxidse sulphur to sulphur trioxide (SO3), which eventually combines with water to generate sulphuric acid.
This was the method used in 1736 to produce sulphuric acid in a large commercial scale for the first time. Only a few years later, the method start being carried out in lead-lined containers, which were cheaper and could produce larger amounts in each reaction, finally allowing the effective industrialisation of sulphuric acid.
This method remained almost the same for over 2 centuries, but new processes started requiring purer forms of sulphuric acid which cannot be obtained in this manner. For these specialist applications, this chemical is manufactured by dry distillation following a method very similar to what alchemists developed.
Nowadays, most manufacturers follow the contact process, patented in 1831. This is a far more economic process to synthesise sulphuric acid.
