Information @ a Glance

  • The chemical compound ammonium nitrate, the nitrate of ammonia with the chemical formula NH4NO3.
  • Ammonium nitrate is a white powder at room temperature and standard pressure.
  • Ammonium nitrate is commonly used in agriculture as a high-nitrogen fertilizer.
  • Ammonium nitrate has also been used as an oxidizing agent in explosives, including improvised explosive devices.
  • The processes involved in the production of ammonium nitrate in industry,the acid-base reaction of ammonia with nitric acid gives a solution of ammonium nitrate.
  • The Haber process combines nitrogen and hydrogen to produce ammonia, part of which can be oxidised to nitric acid and combined with the remaining ammonia to produce the nitrate. Another production method is used in the so-called Odda process.
  • Ammonium nitrate decomposes into gases including oxygen when heated, ammonium nitrate can be induced to decompose explosively by detonation.
  • AN can be used as a fertilizer or as an explosive.
  • 95% of AN in Australia is used as an explosive in the mining industry and 5% used as a fertilizer mainly by horticulturalists.
  • Council Of Australian Governments (COAG) agreed to a national review of the regulation, reporting and security for the storage, sale and handling of hazardous materials.
  • In a fire, all types of ammonium nitrate may melt and decompose with the release of toxic fumes which may be yellow or brown.
