USES OF HYDROCHLORIC ACID:

  • Production of Vinyl chloride for PVC plastic
  • In titrations to determine concentration of bases
  • pH control and neutralisation
  • Pickling of steel
  • Rust removal
  • Production of inorganic salts
  • Regeneration of ion exchange resins
  • Acid cleaners (toilet descalers etc)

How to make 1M, 0.1M, 0.00N, etc solutions of HCL

3.5M HCl can be used to make any lower strength solution of hydrochloric acid using the following formula where M is the desired strength (molarity / normality). V = volume to be made.

M (mol/L) x V (L) / 8.68

example to make 100mls of 0.01N HCL

= 0.01 (mol/L) x 0.1 (L) / 8.68

= 0.115mls of 28% HCl should be diluted to 100mls with water.
