Nitration Reaction

  1. May 19, 2007 #1
    I would like to know what happens when a nitrate is added to sulfuric acid. ex. KNO3 plus H2SO4 what does that yield.

    As far as I know, normally reaction occurs as follows
    KNO3+H2SO4-->HKSO4+HNO3
    but in greater temperatures
    2KNO3+H2SO4-->K2SO4+2HNO3
