Common name: Carbonic acid
Short description: Carbonic acid is a product in the fermentation of liquors.
CSD refcode: HIWQEJ
Layman's explanation: The hypothetical acid formed with carbon dioxide and water; it is only in the H2CO3 form when in solution. This acid is found in everyday products, the most prominent of which include carbonated beverages. The conversion of carbonic acid into water and carbon dioxide in sodas is the reason the beverage looses the bubbling.
IUPAC name: Carbonic acid
