What process makes sulfuric acid?
« on: 29/10/2009 12:30:02 »
Gresham, Rick  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Hi,
  
I'm trying to find a process that produces sulfuric acid by reacting SO4 and H2.   So far, no luck.   Are you aware of such a process?

Thank you.

What do you think?

Oops!
perhaps I should include a caveat in my signature saying "if this was posted before about 7:00 UK time I was rushing to post it before I went for a bus. It will contain even more typos than usual."
