About Hydrochloric Acid

Hydrochloric Acid, a colourless inorganic chemical system, is a simplest chlorine-based acid system that contains water. It has a characteristic pungent smell. It is grouped as strongly acidic. It is a solution made from hydrogen chloride and water, with several other chemical species like hydronium and chloride ions. Being a strong acid product with acute toxicity and corrosivity, Hydrochloric Acid is extensively used for steel pickling. 

Chemical Formula:

  • HCl


  • 7647-01-0
  • Hydrogen chloride
  • Muriatic acid

Molecular Weight:     

  • 36.46 g/mol

Industrial Uses

  • Steel pickling
  • Pharmaceuticals 
  • Amino acid
  • Monosodium glutamate
  • Oil well acidizing
  • Food manufacturing
  • Calcium chlorides
  • Ore processing

Production Processes

  • Production of Hydrochloric Acid from Hydrogen and Chloride; and via Reaction of Salt (NaCl) and Sulphuric Acid

In order to produce Hydrochloric Acid from hydrogen and chloride, both the reactants are utilised in their gaseous forms, which can be obtained from the electrolysis of brine. Combustion of hydrogen and chlorine takes place, which are cooled to produce Hydrochloric Acid.

Procurement Resource also provides the production cost analysis of Hydrochloric Acid.
