Phosphoric Acid

Phosphoric acid, also known as orthophosphoric acid (H3PO4), is one of the most widely known and used acids in agricultural, industrial and food applications. It is used as an additive to acidify foods and beverages including various colas, providing a tangy or sour taste. Phosphoric acid also functions as a rust inhibitor, a dental and industrial etchant, as fertilizer feedstock and is an ingredient in home cleaning products. Since it is mass produced it is easily obtainable.

Specific applications of phosphoric acid include:

  • Anti-rust treatment by phosphate conversion coating.
  • As an external standard for phosphorus-31 nuclear magnetic resonance.
  • In fuel cells.
  • In activated carbon production.
  • As a pH adjuster in cosmetics and skin-care products.
  • In the role of sanitizing agent in the dairy, food and brewing industries.
