Application

The acid selectively blocks dye components from staining the tissue by either binding to it or by acting as a mordant. It may be used a recyclable superacid catalyst for isomerization reaction of cycloalkanes. It may simply be used as an acid catalyst for the following reactions:
  • Prins cyclization reaction
  • dehydration of alcohols
  • hydration of olefins.3
Phosphotungstic acid based membranes may be used for fuel cell applications.
