The book provides a practical and up-to-date account of the product properties, synthesis and reaction mechanisms, including catalysis and commercial catalysts, modern production technology for different feedstocks, quality specifications and environmental health and safety aspects, uses and economic data of this important commodity chemical. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Harding, A. J. Ammonia manufacture and uses. London, New York, Oxford University Press, (OCoLC) Ammonia is one of the most important inorganic basic chemicals, not only for the manufacture of fertilizers (85%) but also for the production of plastics, fibers, explosives, and intermediates for dyes and pharmaceuticals. It is an essential reaction component for the synthesis of numerous organic chemicals used as solvents and intermediates.

Ammonia and ammonium hydroxide are not particularly corrosive in themselves, but corrosion problems can arise with specific materials, particularly when contaminants are present. This article discusses the corrosion resistance of materials used for the manufacture, handling, and storage of ammonia. Ammonia is one of the main ingredients in a lot of household cleaning products. It is used as a cleaning agent and can be used to remove stains or clean mirrors, tubs, sinks, windows and more. Some other uses include antimicrobial agent or an antiseptic, and ammonia is also used as a fuel. For Manufacturing Various Compounds. We find uses of. Ammonia, a colorless gas with a distinct odor, is a building-block chemical and a key component in the manufacture of many products people use every occurs naturally throughout the environment in the air, soil and water and in plants and animals, including humans. The human body makes ammonia when the body breaks down foods containing protein into amino acids and ammonia, then. Ammonia is one of the most highly produced inorganic chemicals. There are numerous large-scale ammonia production plants worldwide, producing a total of million tonnes of nitrogen (equivalent to million tonnes of ammonia) in China produced % of the worldwide production, followed by Russia with %, India with %, and the United States with %. 80% or more of the ammonia.

This page describes the Haber Process for the manufacture of ammonia from nitrogen and hydrogen, and then goes on to explain the reasons for the conditions used in the process. It looks at the effect of temperature, pressure and catalyst on the composition of the equilibrium mixture, the rate of the reaction and the economics of the process. ever, the use of ammonia in these two products represents only a small fraction of the total global ammonia production, which was around million metric tons in (1). To appreciate where the industry and technology are today, let’s first take a look at how we got here. Ammonia has been known for more than years. This reaction can also be used, to test Ammonia. Ammonia is soluble in alkaline – reacts with acids to form salts. NH 3 HNO 3 NH 4 NO 3(aq) Haber Process: Haber Process is used, to manufacture Ammonia. Nitrogen and Hydrogen is reacted together in the presence of Iron Catalyst (Fe 2 O 3) to form Ammonia. Equation: N 2 + 3H 2 2NH 3. The production of ammonia is done on large scale and large quantities are produced because it has many important uses. Manufacture of Fertilizers: The main use of ammonia is in the manufacture of fertilizers. Approximately 75% of all ammonia produced is converted into various ammonium compounds like ammonium sulphate (NH 4) 2 SO 4, ammonium.
