About product

Pharmaceutical grade hydrochloric acid (Ph.Eur); Hydrochloric acid - strong pharmaceutical grade inorganic acid. It is used in neutralization reactions and for pH adjustment. Application in environmental quality monitoring, e.g. analysis of soil, chemical composition of sediments, water.

According to the product documentation, hydrochloric acid should be stored/transported at a temperature of -30 °C to 30 °C, as desorption of hydrogen chloride occurs at higher temperatures. Due to high temperatures, please contact us individually to determine the possibility of transport.

ATTENTION! Explosives and/or drug precursor.

When buying, please send a statement that is included in the downloads.

Hydrochloric acid 37% of pharmaceutical quality - a strong inorganic acid, is a basic substance in the pharmaceutical industry. It is used in qualitative and quantitative analysis. Hydrochloric acid is used in the production of plastics, in the pharmaceutical industry. Hydrochloric acid is a component of aqua regia, which is used in dissolving metals. It is commonly used as a solvent in chemical analysis. HCl is used in household chemistry products as a component of cleaning, descaling and draining gels. High-quality and pure hydrochloric acid reaches a maximum concentration of 37%. The action of the acid is used as an active substance in biocidal products.
Additionally, hydrochloric acid is used:

• in the food industry
• in the pharmaceutical industry
• for water treatment (pH adjustment)
• for municipal sewage treatment
• for industrial cleaning and washing
• in the power industry for the regeneration of ion exchangers
• in the production of industrial chemicals, including agrochemicals or fertilizers
• in the production of household chemicals
• for extraction of ores in the mining industry
• in the production of biofuels, oils and lubricants
• in galvanizing and galvanizing processes
• in tanning
• in the textile industry
• in the construction industry as an additive to concrete and mortar, for insulation of wires and cables, for adhesives and building binders

PF Hydrochloric Acid meets the requirements defined by the European Pharmacopoeia (version 9.0) as defined in the Monograph for Hydrochloric Acid Concentrated.
