how to make hydrocloric acid

Recommended Posts

Making it yourself is a lot more effort than just buying some.

There are various reactions that will produce HCl as a gas, which you could collect and bubble through water to dissolve it. However, unless you have proper equipment and do it right that could get pretty dangerous.

 

I wouldn't recommend attempting any electrolysis methods though that's just asking for disaster.

 

EDIT: I just did a quick search of these forums, there are plenty of threads on this topic actually.

Yeah... chlorine from where?:doh:

 

 

The electrolysis of sodium chloride. A reaction that would produce chlorine gas, it's not difficult (not particularly safe though).

That was kind of my point. Still quite dangerous and imo not worth the hassle :)

Impossible unless you mean the gas or want to work in extreme conditions.
