  1. chloric acid

    Chloric acid is a strong inorganic acid that is highly corrosive. Its chemical formula is HClO3. The acid is known to be quite unstable and is usually created in a dilute aqueous form. Chloric acid is a powerful oxidizing agent and is often used in the production of other chemicals or disinfectants. In high concentrations, it can be explosive. Contact with this substance is dangerous, as it can cause severe burns and is harmful if inhaled or ingested.

  1. Chloric acid

    Chloric acid, HClO3, is an oxoacid of chlorine, and the formal precursor of chlorate salts. It is a strong acid and oxidizing agent. It is prepared by the reaction of sulfuric acid with barium chlorate, the insoluble barium sulfate being removed by precipitation: Another method is the heating of hypochlorous acid, of which productions include chloric acid and hydrogen chloride: It is also produced by the reaction of sulfuric acid with potassium chlorate in the combustion of sugar using potassium chlorate, sulfuric acid, and sugar. It is stable in cold aqueous solution up to a concentration of approximately 30%, and solution of up to 40% can be prepared by careful evaporation under reduced pressure. Above these concentrations, and on warming, chloric acid solutions decompose to give a variety of products, for example: The decomposition is controlled by kinetic factors: indeed, chloric acid is never thermodynamically stable with respect to disproportionation. Chloric acid is a dangerously powerful oxidizing agent and will cause most organics and flammables to deflagrate on contact. For example a mixture of potassium chlorate and sugar will burn when concentrated sulfuric acid is added due to chloric acid production. Because sulfur tends to contain acidic impurities, it will form highly unstable mixtures with potassium chlorate due to chloric acid being produced.
