Flammable. It can be freely miscible with water, ethanol, ether and glycerol, 

and most polar organic solvents.

 It also has certain solubility in hydrocarbons.

The relative density (d204) was 1.220. 3714. The combustion heat is 

254.4 kJ / mol, the critical temperature is 306.8 ºC, and the critical pressure 

is 8.63 MPa. 9 ºC (open cup). The density is 1.22g/cm3, and the saturated vapor 

pressure (24 ºC) is 5.33 kPa

Formic acid with high concentration is easy to freeze in winter.

Forbidden compounds: strong oxidant, strong alkali, active metal powder.

Hazard characteristics: its vapor and air form an explosive mixture, which 

can cause combustion and explosion 

in case of open fire and high heat. It can react with strong oxidant.

Rubber industry: natural rubber coagulant.

Others: it can also produce mordant for printing and dyeing, dyeing agent, treatment agent, 

plasticizer, food preservative and animal feed additive for fiber and paper.

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.
