Applications

Main commercial usage of Nitric acid, ACS, 68.0-70.0% is in the production of fertilizers and reagent for nitration. It is used in the applications for the production of explosives, nylon precursors and specialty organic compounds. Nitric acid is indirectly used as an oxidizer in liquid-fueled rockets for determining trace level metals in solutions. It is used as a chemical doping agent for organic semiconductors and in purification processes for raw carbon nanotubes, artificially age pine and maple.

Notes

Strong oxidizing agent, it should be stored away from bases and organics.
