Abstract (300 words maximum)

Sulfuric acid (H2SO4) is an inexpensive and highly reactive acid widely used in industrial chemistry. Its applications include anything from agricultural to biological processes, from metallurgy to chemical treatments, including acid hydrolysis, the most common chemical treatment. This concentrated acid has a wide range of capabilities such as oxidation, dehydration, and sulfonation of most organic compounds giving it a broad range of applications. The versatile chemical sulfuric acid is manufactured through two distinct processes: the Lead-Chamber process and the Contact Process. Its production is significant since sulfuric acid is an essential commodity vital to the manufacture of various commercial goods used in everyday life.
