Selenic acid is a strong dibasic acid with the formula H2SeO4. It can be manufactured by oxidising selenium compounds in lower oxidation states. One of the methods includes oxidising selenium dioxide with hydrogen peroxide.
In this short piece of article, we will be discussing more the selenic acid formula, its chemical structure properties and uses.
