Formic acid is soluble in water and is miscible in most polar organic solvents, but they are sparsely soluble in hydrocarbons. When it is in the gas phase, they form dimers which in turn result in deviations from ideal gas law. Formic acids do not form acyl chlorides or acid anhydrides under normal conditions. It has the unique ability to react with alkenes besides reactions, where they form esters. In the presence of sulphuric or hydrofluoric acid, they do not form esters, rather, form a larger carboxylic acid.
