Formic Acid (a.k.a. Methanoic Acid) is an organic compound, the simplest carboxylic acid in existence. The acid is a colorless fuming liquid, with pungent odor. It was first isolated in 1671, however, it began to be industrially produced in the 1960s, when it became available as a by-product of acetic acid production. Currently, the main method of production has changed (based on methanol), and methanoic acid can be classified as a medium-volume chemical commodity, with the world production capacity at around 800000 tons/year.
