Laboratory Grade
Fluoroboric Acid

Fluoroboric Acid, also known as Tetrafluoroboric Acid, Borofluoric Acid has the chemical formula HBF4. It appears as a colorless, odorless, poisonous liquid. It is soluble in Water and Ethanol. It is corrosive to metals and tissue and releases toxic vapors of Hydrogen Fluoride and Boron on heating to decomposition temperature. It is considered a strong acid and commercially available as a solution in water and solvents such as Diethyl Ether. Lab Alley’s Fluoroboric Acid solution contains 48% Fluoroboric acid mixed with a balanced quantity of distilled Water. Chemically pure or Laboratory reagents are two terms often used to describe Lab Grade chemicals. Lab Grade chemicals do not meet any accepted quality or purity requirements such as the ACS Grade, the USP Grade, and the FCC Grade, despite their acceptable purity. In the United States of America (USA), Lab Alley is selling its high-quality Fluoroboric Acid, 48% Solution, Lab Grade online at laballey.com. Due to its high purity Fluoroboric Acid, 48% Solution, Lab Grade is highly recommended for labs and commercial applications.

Fluoroboric acid or tetrafluoroboric acid (archaically, fluoboric acid) is an inorganic compound that is mainly produced as a precursor to other fluoroborate salts. It is a strong acid. Fluoroboric acid is corrosive and attacks the skin. It is available commercially as a solution in water and other solvents such as diethyl ether. It is a strong acid with a weakly coordinating, non-oxidizing conjugate base. It is structurally similar to perchloric acid, but lacks the hazards associated with oxidants.
