Ammonia is chemical element that has the symbol NH3. Ammonia, is the starting material for the production of many important nitrogen compounds. It is than air and colourless gas with a characteristic pungent odour. Ammonia, as used commercially, is often called anhydrous ammonia. This term emphasizes the absence of water in the material. But amamonia is dissolved easily in water.
Ammonia can be turned from a gas into a liquid by compression or by cooling to about -33 C. In returning to the gaseous state, it absorbs substantial amounts of heat from its surroundings. The major use of ammonia is as a fertilizer .It is either applied directly to the soil as liquid or as ammonium nitrate, ammonium phosphate, and other salts. Ammonia, either directly or indirectly, is also a building block for the synthesis of many pharmaceuticals.
