Questions dissipate acid
« on: October 05, 2019, 07:32:38 AM »

In my room I have several electronic devices, if I use 70% trichloroacetic acid inside my room and if I use muriatic acid in the bathroom next to my room will these acids evaporate creating acidic air and causing corrosion on the boards of my electronic devices? any chemical engineers?

Toxic volatile compounds should not be used without adequate protection in a closed space.

What would be an enclosed space? the use of muriatic acid is with the bathroom door open but my electronics are in the other room and this room has no window but air goes over the wall

Your lungs are much, much more at risk than electronic devices. They matter more, too.

Does the muriatic acid solution contain too much concentration of hydrochloric acid? Is this concentration sufficient to generate corrosive vapors to electronics?

Muriatic acid and hydrochloric acid are synonyms, so the question doesn't make much sense. Plus, muriatic acid is not something of a well defined concentration, which makes the answer even more problematic.

Hydrochloric acid is quite volatile, so even relatively low concentrations (like 3%) are dangerous to electronics if not stored separately.

In my case my family wash the bathroom using muriatic acid, my room next to the bathroom, the muriatic acid in the bathroom will evaporate change the air in the house and that acidic air will enter the electronics initiating corrosion?

No simple answer, as it depends on many factors. Not impossible.

In order to dissipate muriatic acid vapor before depositing on objects and equipment what needs to occur? Is it possible for me to do a test in my house to test if it has dissipation before harming?

What is the difference between hydrochloric acid and muriatic acid? do both release corrosive vapor to electronics and metals?
