About Chromic Acid 3% Lab Grade

Chromic Acid usually refers to a collection of compounds formed via the dissolution of Chromium Trioxide in Sulfuric Acid, or via the acidification of Chromate/Dichromate solutions. It is a dark red, strongly corrosive liquid. Since it contains chromium in its +6 oxidation state, it has strong oxidizing properties and a high redox potential.

Lab Alley’s Chromic Acid, 3% Solution contains 3% by weight of Chromic Acid mixed with 97% by weight of purified Water. 

Chromic acid is an intermediate in chromium plating, and is also used in ceramic glazes, and colored glass. It is a strong oxidizer (reacts with organic material) that it is used to clean glassware with stubborn organic stains.
