   What will sulfuric acid do to sugar? ??? I saw somewhere that when when sulfuric acid was poured on a chocolate bar  the chocolate turned into a gummy substance that the acid had a hard time dissolving. Would this really work? :borg:

I know that if you pour concentrated sulfuric acid over pure sugar, it will dehydrate the sugar and leave you with some steam and pure carbon.

you tell us.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

  I thought everything else in the chocolate would get dissolved and I would barely call carbon gummy.

Chocolate is MOSTLY sugar, but there are other things in it too, in milk chocolate especially, there are things like cocoa butter, fats and oils, caffeine, and my very favourite constituent:phenylethylamine ;D
