Ammonium Nitrate (a.k.a. AN) is an inorganic salt with colorless and odorless crystals that are soluble in most organic solvents. The salt is hardly found in nature, for its high water solubility. It was first described in 1659 and, currently, is the most commercially important ammonium compound in production volume and usage terms. Its great importance comes from the fact that the salt incorporates nitrogen and makes it readily available, in both of the forms that plants and crops use: nitrate ion and ammonia. Fertilizers are the primary use of ammonium nitrate; however, it is used in other industries such as mining, military and civil.
