Alchemical Power Components (Acid & Fire)

From the pages of Adventurer's Armory:

Acid Flask
A common flask of acid has many uses as a power component, particularly with attack spells.
Acid Arrow (M): The spell’s acid lasts 1 round longer than normal.
Acid Fog (M): The fog’s radius and height increase by 5 feet.
Acid Splash (F): The spell deals +1 point of damage.
Acid Splash (M): The spell lasts 1 round longer than normal.
Dispel Magic (M): Using acid as a material component while attempting to dispel or counterspell a spell or effect with the earth subtype gives you a +2 bonus on your dispel check. This bonus applies whether you are using dispel magic, greater dispel magic, or some other spell that you can use for counterspelling (for example, if you have the Improved Counterspell feat).
Grease (M): The grease is acidic and deals 1 point of acid damage per round to any creature in the area or holding the greased object.
Wall of Ice (M): For each flask of acid used as a power component, you may designate one 10-foot square of ice wall that, if broken through, deals 1d6 acid damage in addition to the normal cold damage.

Alchemist’s Fire
This dwarven favorite can make fire spells last longer.
Burning Hands (M): One target that fails its Reflex saving throw (your choice) catches on fire as if it has been struck by alchemist’s fire.
Fireball (M): One target per caster level that fails its Reflex saving throw (your choice) catches on fire as if it has been struck by alchemist’s fire.
Flaming Sphere (M): Any creature damaged by a flaming sphere catches on fire as if it has been struck by alchemist’s fire.
Protection from Energy (M): If cast to ward against cold, increase the amount of fire damage absorbed by 5.
Resist Energy (M): If cast to ward against cold, increase the fire resistance to 12. At caster level 7th, you may use two flasks of alchemist’s fire as a power component to increase the fire resistance to 24. At caster level 11th, you may use three flasks as a power component to increase the fire resistance to 36.
Scorching Ray (F): Add a +1 circumstance bonus on your attack roll with all rays from the spell.
Scorching Ray (M): Any target damaged by a scorching ray catches on fire as if it has been struck by alchemist’s fire.
