About Phosphoric Acid

Phosphoric Acid, better known as orthophosphoric acid, is a weak acid. It is known to be a non-toxic compound which, in its pure form, appears as a colourless solid. The crude Phosphoric Acid can be prepared from phosphate rock, but it is of low purity. All the 3 hydrogens are acidic to varying degrees and can be lost from the molecule as H+ ions (protons).

Production Processes

  • Production of Phosphoric Acid via Dihydrate Process; and via Hemihydrate Process

In order to produce Phosphoric Acid through the dihydrate process, a rection between tricalcium phosphate and concentrated sulphuric acid is carried out at high temperature conditions. This forms calcium sulphate as the byproduct, which is in its dihydrate form. Finally, dihydrate calcium sulphate is removed by filtration, leaving behind Phosphoric Acid.
