Chemical Properties

Ammonia (NH3) is a colourless gas with a sharp and pungent odour, characteristic of drying urine. It can be highly corrosive, particularly to copper and galvanised surfaces.

It easily forms a solution when mixed with water, due to strong hydrogen bonding. In solution, the boiling point is -33°C and melting point is -77°C. The characteristic odour can be masked by adding sodium bicarbonate or acetic acid, to form an odourless ammonium salt.

When in solution, ammonia is miscible with a wide variety of solvents, including alcohol, chloroform, ether and water. The maximum concentration of ammonia in water (giving a saturated solution) is 33% ammonia, with a density of 0.88 g/cm 3. This is known as 0.88 SG.

Mixed with oxygen, ammonia gives a yellow/green flame, and at high temperature it can be decomposed to its individual components, nitrogen and hydrogen.

Ignition can occur in the presence of chlorine, to form nitrogen and hydrogen chloride. Under certain circumstances, the explosive nitrogen thrichloride (NCl3) can be formed.

Is Ammonia a Base or an Acid?

Ammonia is generally considered a weak base, and can easily combine with strong acids to form salts containing the NH4 ion. For example, with nitric acid, it forms ammonium nitrate and with hydrochloric acid it form ammonium chloride.


NH3 HCl → NH4Cl

However, ammonia can also behave as a weak acid and react with stronger bases. In this case, it forms amides containing the NH2– ion. Lithium, for example, produces a lithium amide in liquid ammonia.

2Li 2NH3 → 2 LiNH2  H2
