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.
