ArChem Ammonium chloride is used as a nitrogen supply in fertilizers and as an electrolyte in the dry cells. Other uses of ArChem Ammonium chloride include:
Ammonium chloride is produced by the reaction of ammonia with hydrogen chloride.
NH3 + HCl → NH4Cl
It is also formed as the by-product of the Solvay Process. In this process, carbon dioxide and ammonia are passed into a cold saturated solution of sodium chloride.
CO2 + 2 NH3 + 2 NaCl + H2O → 2 NH4Cl + Na2CO3
