Why sulpuric acid only used to ROI but not used nitric acid and some other acids?..

Answer / ankur dwivedi

As we generally check the inorganics by this test by
converting it into their sulphates with the treatment of
H2SO4 and sulphates are very stable at high temperature
(about up to 800-1000). while nitrates and chlorides are
not stable at high temperature. Hence it is recommended to
go for sulphated ash instead of nitrates and chlorides.

Answer / amarendra allu

sulpuric acid is strong acid and after addition of H2SO4 ORGANIC COMPOUND WILL DECOMPOSED AND VAPORISED BY IGNITING. ROI IS CONTENT OF INORGANIC ,after addition of H2SO4 to compound it converting into their sulphates with the treatment of H2SO4 and sulphates are very stable at high temperature
(about up to 800-1000). while nitrates and chlorides are
