ACIDS

Acids are defined as substances that have a sour taste, a low pH (<7), and cause litmus paper to turn red. They also react with bases (yielding water and ionic compounds called salts) and produce hydrogen gas when used to dissolve metals such as zinc and iron.

What are Acids?

Acids are defined as substances that have a sour taste, a low pH (<7), and cause litmus paper to turn red. They also react with bases (yielding water and ionic compounds called salts) and produce hydrogen gas when used to dissolve metals such as zinc and iron.

Chemical Structures

Chemically, an acid is a molecule or ion that acts as a proton or hydrogen ion donor (Brønsted-Lowry acid) in a non-aqueous solution. In water, acids form hydronium ions (H3O+).

Our Solutions & Benefits

An acid is alternatively defined as a molecule or ion that accepts an electron pair (Lewis acid). One example is trifluoroborane, which has a boron atom capable of accepting an electron pair from ammonia (NH3) to form NH3-BF3.

Common inorganic acids include hydrochloric, sulfuric, nitric, and phosphoric acids. Common organic acids include acetic, benzoic, citric, and lactic acids.

In the laboratory, acids are used as reagents or catalysts in many types of chemical reactions.

Strong acids, such as sulfuric and hydrochloric acid, are highly corrosive and have extensive commercial applications.

Acids are available in concentrated form or in solutions and in a variety of grades based on purity, including reagent (ACS), laboratory, and other technical and specialty preparations.

Concentrated acetic acid is a useful chemical for industries from food manufacturing to health care. Known as a weaker organic chemical, acetic acid properties are well suited for countless applications. K-I Chemical Europe SA is a leading acetic acid manufacturer, with pure acetic acid, food-grade acetic acid, and more. We stand apart from the competition in this industry because we are a top supplier of bulk acetic acid, which gives you smart, economical options for whatever your industrial purpose. Read on to learn more about acetic acid uses and why K-I Chemical Europe SA should be your first stop to buy acetic acid.

Manufacturers recognize acetic acid for its distinct pungent odor. They also value it as one of the more versatile chemicals. In its purest form, acetic acid is corrosive and good for cleaning or thinning purposes. However, when diluted, it is a highly useful chemical used for such purposes as antiseptics, food additives (such as vinegar), inks, dyes, perfumes, esters, paints, and resins. As far as acetic acid suppliers go, K-I Chemical Europe SA is your No. 1 partner because we have a deep understanding of the chemical composition of acetic acid and other chemicals. We are experts in ethanoic acid uses, as well as its strengths, weaknesses, and how it can best be used for your industrial application.
