Lemma 13.11.2. Let $\mathcal{A}$ be an abelian category. The full subcategory $\text{Ac}(\mathcal{A})$ of $K(\mathcal{A})$ consisting of acyclic complexes is a strictly full saturated triangulated subcategory of $K(\mathcal{A})$. The corresponding saturated multiplicative system (see Lemma 13.6.10) of $K(\mathcal{A})$ is the set $\text{Qis}(\mathcal{A})$ of quasi-isomorphisms. In particular, the kernel of the localization functor $Q : K(\mathcal{A}) \to \text{Qis}(\mathcal{A})^{-1}K(\mathcal{A})$ is $\text{Ac}(\mathcal{A})$ and the functor $H^0$ factors through $Q$.

**Proof.**
We know that $H^0$ is a homological functor by Lemma 13.11.1. Thus this lemma is a special case of Lemma 13.6.11.
