Sulfuric acid, also known as hydrogen sulfate, is a highly corrosive mineral acid with the formula H2SO4. It is transparent, colorless, and odorless. Electronic grade sulfuric acid is a high purity chemical used in the electronics industry for semiconductor and PCB cleaning and etching. A highly corrosive acid comes out as a yellowish viscous liquid. The manufacturing technology for electronic-grade sulfuric acid consists primarily of rectification methods and other procedures. The invention provides reliable electronic-grade sulfuric acid production method process protection, as well as high product purity and low contamination ion content, which can be used in the production of large-scale integrated circuits. Electronic-grade sulfuric acid is currently widely used in the IC manufacturing process; it peels off as resistance, and the most commonly used sulfuric acid has a concentration of 96% left and right. Sulfuric acid can be used to eliminate the organic pollutant on the substrate surface in conjunction with hydrogen peroxide or the ozone crossed before metal refining, and the natural pollutant that remains on the substrate and relevant device can have a negative impact on normal production. Sulfuric acid of electronic grade is used primarily for cleaning and etching semiconductors and PCBs. It is the most common and widely used specialty wet chemical in the semiconductor industry for specific and customized electronic applications.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

The COVID-19 outbreak has affected economies and industries in a number of countries due to lockdowns, travel bans, and business closures. All-major industries are experiencing severe disruptions, including supply chain breakdowns, technology event cancellations, and office closures because of the outbreak. China is the global manufacturing hub with the presence of and the largest raw material suppliers. The electronic grade sulfuric acid market is also suffering from the overall market breakdown caused by COVID-19 due to factory closures, supply chain obstacles, and the global economic downturn. The pandemic has had a significant impact on the electronic grade sulfuric acid end-use industries. Electrical and electronics, as well as automotive (automotive electronics), are among the industries that have been hardest hit by the pandemic. The industrial shutdown has had a negative impact on product and inventory transportation because logistic services have been hampered by the COVID-19 outbreak.
