    Im unsure about Questions that ask for reagents or chemicals to break or catalyse reactions.

    HOW do I distinguish between when I should use


    HCL or H2SO4?

    & then, which concentration to use??? Dilute. moderately concentrated or concentrated?




    Any help will be highly appreciated. Cheers!

    i would imagine 1mol/dm3 H2SO4 would be the same as 2mol/dm3 HCl, as it is the H+ ions that often catalyse reactions

    Nitration of benzene - conc H2SO4
    Oxidation of alcohols - H2SO4
    Acid Hydrolysis of esters - Dilute H2SO4 (Dilute because the water is reacting)
    Acid Hydrolysis of peptides - Dilute HCl

    always say aqueous / (aq) with dilute depending what the marks are for you might not always get just dilute
