How is Sulphuric Acid Produced?
There are two available methods to produce sulphuric acid: via the conventional contact process or the wet sulphuric acid process.
This multi-step process starts with the oxidation of sulphur to produce sulphur dioxide (reaction 1), which is then oxidised to sulphur trioxide in the presence of a vanadium oxide catalyst (reaction 2).
The sulphur trioxide is subsequently absorbed in a high concentration solution of sulphuric acid to form H2S2O7 (reaction 3), commonly called fuming sulphuric acid. This solution is finally diluted with water to generate sulphuric acid (reaction 4):
Reaction 1 – SO2 → SO2
Reaction 2 – 2SO2 + O2 → 2SO3
Reaction 3 – H2SO4 + SO3 → H2S2O7
Reaction 4 – H2S2O7 + H2O → 2H2SO4
This also multi-step method starts in a similar way, with oxidation of sulphur to generate sulphur dioxide (reaction 1) or alternatively, hydrogen sulphide (H2S) is burnt to produce sulphur dioxide gas (reaction 2).
Sulphur dioxide is subsequently oxidised to sulphur trioxide with a vanadium oxide as catalyst (reaction 3) which is then hydrated to produce sulphuric acid:
Reaction 1 – SO2 → SO2
Reaction 2 – 2H2S + 3O2 → 2H2O + 2SO2
Reaction 3 – 2SO2 + O2 → 2SO3
Reaction 4 – SO3 + H2O → H2SO4
