It is a highly corrosive acid with oxidizing and sanitizing properties, is hygroscopic, and functions as a dehydrating agent (see Sulfuric Acid: 1 Molecule, 101 Uses). It is widely used in the manufacture of chemicals in making hydrochloric acid, sulfate salts, synthetic detergents, and dyes and pigments. It is also used in the production of fertilizers, such as super-phosphate of lime and ammonium sulfate.
