About Boric Acid 99.8% ACS Reagent Grade
Boric Acid, or more specifically Orthoboric Acid, is a compound with three hydroxyl groups connected to a boron atom. The molecule has trigonal planar geometry centered at the boron atom. It is an odorless, water-soluble white solid. Since it cytotoxic, it is useful as an antiseptic, antifungal, and antiviral agent.
The ACS Grade is generally equivalent to the reagent grade and is acceptable for use in analytical applications and research laboratories.
