About Ammonium Nitrate. 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.
Chemical Formula. NH4NO3
Commercial Grades. 20.5% nitrogen; 33.5% nitrogen; fertilizer grade; 83% aqueous solution; and temperature stabilized grade.
Uses. Ammonium Nitrate is mainly employed as: fertilizer; pyrotechnics; ingredient of freezing mixtures; oxidizer in solid rocket propellants; catalyst; nutrient for yeast; and ingredient in some antibiotics. It is also used in herbicides/insecticides manufacturing and explosive production (used in mining, construction, quarrying and military).
- Ammonia + nitric acid (neutralization reaction)
- Apatite + ammonia + nitric acid + carbon dioxide (Odda process, byproduct of nitrophosphate production)
