|5% in Denatured Ethanol
Nitric Acid, also known as Aqua Fortis, Engraver’s Acid, Azotic acid, and Hydrogen Nitrate has the chemical formula HNO3. It appears as a transparent, pale yellow to red-brown liquid, releasing reddish- brown fumes, with a characteristic choking odor. It is soluble in Water but highly toxic on inhalation. Lab Alley’s Nitric Acid contains 5% by volume of Nitric Acid in a balanced quantity of Denatured Ethanol. The mixture appears as a clear, colorless liquid, with a characteristic odor. 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 Nitric Acid, 5% (v/v) in Denatured Ethanol, Lab Grade online at laballey.com. Due to its high purity Nitric Acid, 5% (v/v) in Denatured Ethanol Lab Grade is highly recommended for laboratory applications.

Nitric acid, also known as aqua fortis and spirit of niter, is a highly corrosive mineral acid. The pure compound is colorless, but older samples tend to acquire a yellow cast due to decomposition into oxides of nitrogen and water. Most commercially available nitric acid has a concentration of 68% in water.

Information On Nitric Acid From PubChem
Nitric acid, red fuming appears as a pale yellow to reddish brown liquid generating red-brown fumes and having a suffocating odor. Very toxic by inhalation. Corrosive to metals or tissue. Prolonged exposure to low concentrations or short term exposure to high concentrations may result in adverse health effects. Rate of onset: Immediate Persistence: Hours - days Odor threshold: ~1 ppm Source/use/other hazard: Used in many industries; Very corrosive to skin/mucous membranes as well as metals & other materials.
Nitric acid is a nitrogen oxoacid of formula HNO3 in which the nitrogen atom is bonded to a hydroxy group and by equivalent bonds to the remaining two oxygen atoms. It has a role as a protic solvent and a reagent. It is a conjugate acid of a nitrate.
Nitric acid (HNO3). A colorless liquid that is used in the manufacture of inorganic and organic nitrates and nitro compounds for fertilizers, dye intermediates, explosives, and many different organic chemicals. Continued exposure to vapor may cause chronic bronchitis; chemical pneumonitis may occur.
Nitric Acid Safety And Hazards Information From PubChem
Nitric Acid is TOXIC; inhalation, ingestion or contact (skin, eyes) with vapors, dusts or substance may cause severe injury, burns or death. Reaction with water or moist air may release toxic, corrosive or flammable gases. Reaction with water may generate much heat that will increase the concentration of fumes in the air. Fire will produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may be corrosive and/or toxic and cause pollution.
