Oxalic acid is a naturally occurring organic compound with the chemical formula C2H2O4. It is a white, crystalline solid that is highly soluble in water. Oxalic acid can be found in various plants, such as rhubarb, spinach, and beets, as well as in some animals.
One of the notable properties of oxalic acid is its strong acidity. It is classified as a dicarboxylic acid due to its two carboxyl groups (COOH), which give it its acidic nature. Oxalic acid is considered a relatively strong acid in terms of its dissociation in water.
Oxalic acid is widely used as a cleaning agent and stain remover. It is effective in removing rust stains, mineral deposits, and watermarks from various surfaces like metals, ceramics, and fabrics. It is particularly useful for cleaning rusted tools, metal surfaces, and stained fabrics.
Oxalic acid is commonly employed in the woodworking industry for wood bleaching and restoration purposes. It can lighten or remove stains and discoloration caused by water, heat, or age. It helps revitalize wood surfaces and restore their natural appearance.
Oxalic acid is used for cleaning and polishing metals, especially brass, bronze, and copper. It can remove tarnish, rust, and oxidation from metal surfaces, bringing back their shine and luster.
Oxalic acid is used in the textile industry as a mordant. It helps in fixing dyes onto fabrics and enhances their colorfastness.
