Hydrochloric acid or muriatic acid is a colorless inorganic chemical system with the formula H2OHCl. Hydrochloric acid has a distinctive pungent smell. It is classified as strongly acidic and can attack the skin over a wide composition range, since the hydrogen chloride practically dissociates completely in solution.
Hydrochloric acid is the simplest chlorine-based acid system containing water. It is a solution of hydrogen chloride and water, and a variety of other chemical species, including hydronium and chloride ions.
Hydrochloric acid is a strong, corrosive acid that can be used to make steel for bridges and cars. It is used in the chemical industry in the large-scale production of vinyl chloride for PVC plastic, and it is one of the chemicals that produces polyurethane foam and calcium chloride.
The Global Hydrochloric Acid is expected to witness a significant growth of USD ~ 1869.559 million by 2023 with CAGR of ~5.0% between 2016 and 2023 Hydrochloric acid is one of the names for muriatic acid with the chemical formula HCl. It is also known as acidum salis or spirits of salt. Hydrochloric acid is a, transparent, very strong solution of hydrogen chloride in water.
