To produce Aluminium sulfate AL2(SO4)4 which is used in water treatment to produce Aluminium hydroxide(coagulant);

As a component of nitrating mixture in making nitro-substituted organic compounds(dyestuff, pharmaceuticals precursors, explosives):

As a dehydrating agent in chemical processes such as diethyl ether preparation, esterification reactions and so on;

To produce sulfonated organic compounds used as pharmaceuticals. dyes intermediates and others:

As a catalyst for electrophilic reactions in industry and laboratory( i.e. for the reaction of isobutene with isobutylene to give isooctane and to caprolactam):

In the purification of petroleum to remove impurities out of gasoline and other refinery products:
