Iodic acid, 99%


Chemical Properties

Formula Weight
Melting point
110° dec.
Storage & Sensitivity
Light Sensitive. Ambient temperatures.
Soluble in water and methanol.


Iodic acid is used in analytical chemistry laboratories to standardize solutions of both weak and strong bases using methyl red or methyl orange as the indicator. It acts as a key starting material to synthesize sodium or potassium iodate, thereby increasing the iodine content of salt.


Light sensitive. Incompatible with reducing agents, alcohols and organic materials.
