Hydrofluoric acid is one of the strongest inorganic acids and is used extensively in industry and research. It differs from other acids in that the fluoride ion readily penetrates the skin, causing destruction of deep tissue layers and even bone. Authors have previously described numerous topical treatments. This report describes one method of treatment emphasizing immediate skin cleansing and the application of calcium gluconate gel, which is followed by calcium gluconate subcutaneous injections when necessary. An accurate occupational history and physical examination are important aspects of patient assessment. Prompt treatment resulted in relief of pain and a satisfactory clinical result in all cases. A significant delay in treatment was responsible for permanent impairment in 2 of 14 patients.

An etching mechanism for thin silicon dioxide films in hydrofluoric acid solutions has been deduced from experimental results and a review of literature sources. The etching reaction consists of two elementary chemical reactions at the surface of the silicon dioxide thin film. First, acidic components from the etchant break up the siloxane bonds at the SiO2 surface leaving silanol species. This process creates more space at the SiO2 surface for the fluorinated species to react with the silicon nucleophilically. Experiments at low hydrofluoric acid(HF) concentrations (below 4 M HF) show that the etching reaction is nearly first order. Over a wider range of HF concentration, however, the reaction order approaches 2. Moreover, the addition of strong acids to  hydrofluoric acid(HF) solutions enhances the etching reaction by increasing the rate of the “surface opening” reaction. Literature data support this view of SiO2 etching. Application of these ideas will enhance etching for large area surface micromachining.
