Title: How to produce Nitrate salt from NH4OH?
Post by: Justin_Is_Here on 11/12/2014 01:22:48
I want some reaction based on only above chemicals other than ostwald process.

I think it's impossible in one step.
Maybe, it will work:
1) In a solution there are e1c6b3a2ece1335b94d9a625beb22b2e.gif, 45e46989e3704bc2ba0899724acdca5c.gif and 12350202d6efb1554c9bcc571957851c.gif (896a1b4c1795734f2cc1c72d8006d7e3.gif). If you'd can remove impurities...
2) Then

3) And then you can make all nitrate salts from 1764651a5f2260118fd79d8f7903794e.gif.

P.S. But I'm not a chemist.

Any aqueous oxidations of ammonia or ammonium salts I have come across lead to formation of nitrogen gas, not nitrate...

Then Bacteria have better laboratories:

Yes. Enzymes can do remarkable transformations. Unfortunately, as far as I know there is no known way to this reaction in one of our labs...
