Formic acid, or methanoic acid, is the simplest carboxylic acid and forms a liquid with a pungent smell at room temperature. It has many applications as a preservative and antibacterial agent (especially in animal feed) but is also a major component in the textile and leather industry. Within a laboratory setting, formic acid is often used in reverse-phase HPLC and the synthesis of other chemicals. Recently, formic acid has been a topic of interest in the renewable energy sector with potential use in the manufacture of fuel cells.
