Possible contaminants in sulphuric acid
« on: September 13, 2022, 07:11:31 AM »
I siphoned some sulphuric acid from a car battery and foolishly decided to distil it to concentrate it. However, when I did so, it turned a very dark bluish-green sort of colour. The question is, what would be the possible contaminants in this acid?
