Formic acid, systematically named methanoic acid, is the simplest carboxylic acid, and has the chemical formula H2CO2. It is an important intermediate in chemical synthesis and occurs naturally, most notably in some ants. The word “formic” comes from the Latin word for ant, formica, referring to its early isolation by the distillation of ant bodies. Esters, salts, and the anion derived from formic acid are called formates. Industrially, formic acid is produced from methanol.

Formic acid is one of the basic organic chemical raw materials, widely used in pesticides, leather, dyestuff, medicine and rubber industry. Formic acid can be directly used for fabric processing, tanning, textile printing and dyeing, and storage ofgreen fodder. It can also be used as metal surface treatment agents, rubber auxiliaries and industrial solvents.

CO was prepared. chemical formula:

Reducing agent. Arsenic, bismuth, aluminum, copper, gold, indium, iron, lead, manganese, mercury, molybdenum, silver and zinc were determined. Determination of cerium, rhenium and tungsten. Primary and secondary aromatic amines were tested. The solvent for determining molecular weight and crystallization. Methoxy group was determined. Used as a fixative in microanalysis. To make formates.

Formic acid and its aqueous solution can dissolve many metals, metal oxides, hydroxides and salts. The formates can be dissolved in water, so they can be used as chemical cleaning agents. Formic acid does not contain chloride ion and can be used for cleaning equipment containing stainless steel materials.

Formic acid can be directly used in fabric processing, tanning, textile printing and dyeing, and storage of green fodder. It can also be used as metal surface treatment agent, rubber additive and industrial solvent.
