Latin, Zoological, Botanical and mineralogical name/s:
|Sulphuric Acid, Sulph. Ac.
||Vitriol, Oil of Vitriol
General description and domicile:
Of all the acids used in industry, sulphuric acid is probably the most caustic,
most used, most corrosive and has the richest history of use by the alchemists
of historic times.
Vitriol was derived from the Latin word for glass (vitreus), a reference to the
appearance of the salt, and Oil of Vitriol refers to the oily nature of
concentrated Sulphuric acid.
In America during the time of the reign of gangster bosses like Al Capone
vitriol was used in assaults, particularly women, to permanently disfigure
In industry it is widely used in the manufacture of everything from
pharmaceuticals to fertilizer.
Warning: Extreme care must be taken when handling
sulphuric acid. It is exceptionally corrosive and very hydroscopic (to the
extent that sulphuric acid will explode if diluted too fast).
Diluted sulphuric acid is succused.
Vitriol was once thought to be "The Philosopher's Stone" by alchemists (the
philosopher's stone was supposed to be able to turn metals to gold and, as gold
is one of the few metals that do not dissolve in sulphuric acid, alchemists of
the fourteenth century thought they were on to a good thing).
