Telluric acids exist in both monoclinic and cubic crystalline forms. There are several methods of preparation, treating tellurium and tellurous acid with strong oxidants. Telluric acid is a weak acid which is dibasic, forming hydrogen tellurate salts with weaker base and tellurate salts with strong base or upon hydrolysis of tellurates in water. Telluric acid is able to form well-defined crystalline additive compounds with the salts of such acids as iodic, arsenic, phosphoric, molybdic and tungstic acids. It also forms large, well-defined crystals with potassium nitrate and silver nitrate telluric acid. It was observed that when telluric acid is heated with ammonium chloride, the mixture changes its color from yellow to orange with the formation of a white sublimate.

On further heating the mixture darkens in color and a yellow sublimate is formed which in turn blackens on careful heating. If the chloride is replaced by other common salts of ammonium, such as the nitrate, carbonate, sulphate, phosphate, acetate or molybdate, these changes do not occur.

Telluric acid is formed by the oxidation of tellurium or tellurium dioxide with a powerful oxidizing agent such as hydrogen peroxide, chromium trioxide or sodium peroxide. Crystallization of telluric acid solutions below 10°C gives Te(OH).4HO. It is oxidizing, as shown by the electrode potential for the reaction below, although it is kinetically slow in its oxidations. According to a report published by Oxford University titled ‘SNO+ EXPERIMENT: status and future prospects’ and authored by Laura Segui, suggests that 1.8 tonnes of Te(OH) 6 , corresponds to ~1 tonne Tellurium (Te), or ~0.13% Te loading.

The global market for telluric acid is witnessing growth on the back of high demand from various end users industries such as alloy and steel owing to semiconductor characteristics of telluric acid. However, toxic effects of telluric acid may hinder the market growth during the forecast period.

Previous Analysis says: The global telluric acid market stood at US$ 3,002.4 Mn in 2015 and is anticipated to reach US$ 3,203.1 Mn by 2023, at a CAGR of 0.8% during the forecast period of 2016 to 2023.

Other tellurates segment is projected to maintain its dominance

By application type the market is segmented into tellurium nanorods, tellurium metal and other tellurates. Other tellurates segment accounted for 48.2% share of the market in 2015. Furthermore, this segment is projected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period of 2016 to 2023. However, growth is projected to be highest from tellurium nanorods application segment. This segment is projected to grow at a CAGR of 1.0% in terms of revenue during the forecast period, owing to rising demand for clean and green energy.

Asia Pacific is the largest market for the telluric acid. The countries such as China, Japan and India are the leading countries operating in the telluric acid market in Asia Pacific. Asia Pacific held market share of more than 30% in 2015 in terms of revenue. The major factors driving the growth in Asia Pacific include the rising population, driving the need for more and more renewable energy. Tellurium is widely used in the solar panel which acts as the best source for energy.

North America is the second largest market for telluric acid and will show good demand for telluric acid through the forecast period. However, this region will experience a sluggish growth from 2019 through 2023 on the ground of market maturity.
