Reaction between tin and nitric acid



February 26, 2014

Q. Hi,
I would like to know the interaction of pure tin and concentrated nitric acid. I have a decent knowledge of metallurgy. But I am not that familiar with chemistry. Can you advise me.

A. That white material sounds like metastannic acid.

HCl is a much better solvent for Sn because it is nonoxidizing.
