Formic Acid 99% Chemically Clear


Formic acid, systematically named methanoic acid, is the simplest carboxylic acid. The chemical formula is {displaystyle {{ce {CH2O2}}}}{displaystyle {ce {CH2O2}}}. The chemical composition is HCOOH. 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.
