Nitric acid (dilute nitric acid, concentrated nitric acid)

Obtained through catalytic oxidation of ammonia, nitric acid is a colorless and transparent liquid with an irritant odor and is corrosive and emits smoke.
It slightly decomposes even at ordinary temperature, and heating or direct sunlight promotes further decomposition, resulting in a change of color to yellow or brown.
It is strongly corrosive and oxidizing, reacting with most metals, except gold and platinum, to produce nitrates. It has many applications including as the raw material for low explosives, fertilizer, dye and so on.

Chemical formula HNO3
