Synthetic Nitrogen Products

  • Gary R. Maxwell
Chapter

Abstract

Nitrogen products are among the most important chemicals produced in the world today. The largest quantities are used as fertilizers, but nitrogen products also find very important uses in the manufacture of nylon and acrylic fibers, methacrylate and other plastics, foamed insulation and plastics, metal plating, gold mining, animal feed supplements, and herbicides.

Keywords

Ammonium Nitrate Ammonium Nitrate Nitrogen Dioxide Former Soviet Union Ammonia Synthesis 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
