Here I show the dehydrating power of concentrated sulfuric acid, by immersing a copper sulfate pentahydrate crystal in 96% acid. The acid draws the water of hydration out of the crystal, and causes it to slowly turn white and fall apart over a period of a few months. Sad to sacrifice such a beautiful crystal, but worth it in the end!
