Ammonium chloride,fertilizer manufacturer / supplier in China, offering ammonium chloride, sodium carbonate, sodium sulfate, sodium bicarbonate and so on.
Ammonium chloride is an inorganic compound with the formula NH4Cl and a white crystalline salt that is highly soluble in water. Solutions of ammonium chloride are mildly acidic. Sal ammoniac is a name of the natural, mineralogical form of ammonium chloride. The mineral is commonly formed on burning coal dumps from condensation of coal-derived gases. It is also found around some types of volcanic vents. It is mainly used as fertilizer and a flavouring agent in some types of liquorice. It is the product from the reaction of hydrochloric acid and ammonia.
Synonyms: Sal ammoniac; Ammonium muriate
CAS No.: 12125-02-9
Appearance: white crystalline
Chemical Formula: NH4Cl
The use of industrial grade ammonium chloride is mainly used for batteries, electroplating, dyeing, casting, medicine, flocking, fluff, chemical intermediates and so on. And ammonium chloride can be used as nitrogen fertilizer in agriculture and its mechanism is similar to ammonium sulfate. But the soil acidification caused by ammonium chloride is worse than ammonium chloride. It can be used as basal fertilizer, top dressing, can not be used as seed fertilizer. In addition, for the fear-chlorion crops, such as tobacco, sugarcane and potatoes, do not apply in large quantities.

The main application of ammonium chloride is as a nitrogen source in fertilizers (corresponding to 90% of the world production of ammonium chloride) such as chloroammonium phosphate. The main crops are rice and wheat in Asia.
Ammonium chloride was used in pyrotechnics in the 18th century but was superseded by safer and less hygroscopic chemicals. Its purpose was to provide a chlorine donor to enhance the green and blue colours from copper ions in the flame.
It had a secondary use to provide white smoke, but its ready double decomposition reaction with potassium chlorate producing the highly unstable ammonium chlorate made its use very suspect.
