Hi this is regarding my earlier post as to whether H2SO4 is a carboxylic acid

If it is not a carboxylic acid, what can it be?

    Is it possible Sulfuric Acid?

    No, H2SO4 definitely is not a carboxylic acid. Carboxylic acids are organic acids with the functional group of -COOH usually written as RCOOH. where R stands for anything else attached. H2SO4 is called a mineral acid. Other mineral acids are hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, phosphoric acid, etc. Mineral acids range from the very strong (HNO3) to the very weak (boric acid).
