Molecular formula: NH3
NH3 is colorless, pungent gas composed of nitrogen and hydrogen. Ammonia easily liquefied by compression or cooling for use in refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment. Its major use is as a fertilizer, applied directly to soil from tanks of the liquefied gas. It also employed as fertilizers are salts of ammonia, including ammonium phosphate and ammonium nitrate (the latter used in high explosives as well). Ammonia has many other industrial uses such as a raw material, catalyst and alkali. It dissolves readily in water to form ammonium hydroxide, an alkaline solution familiar as a household cleaner.
Ammonia is mainly used for the production of:
• Nitrogen fertilizers;
• Nitric acid and soda;
As well as:
• Antifreeze additive for building mixture.
