Ammonium carbonate is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula (NH4)2CO3. It is a colorless cubic crystal, easily soluble in water, the aqueous solution is alkaline, and insoluble in ethanol, carbon disulfide and concentrated ammonia. It is unstable to light and heat and slightly hygroscopic.

1. Purpose:

1. Bit by bit analysis of lithium, radium and thorium and carbonate synthesis, etc. It is also used as fertilizer, fire extinguishing agent, detergent, and in industries such as medicine, rubber, and fermentation.

2. Used as raw materials for baking powder, various ammonium salts, buffers, printing and dyeing auxiliaries, fertilizers and analytical reagents.

3. Edible ammonium carbonate is used as a buffer, neutralizer, leavening agent and fermentation accelerator (for making wine).

4. Ammonium carbonate is used in sulfosalicylic acid silver plating electrolyte, but the content of heavy metals, sulfur and thiocyanate needs to be strictly controlled, otherwise the anode will easily turn black. In addition, ammonium carbonate is also used in solutions for removing cadmium, nickel and other coatings.

2. Storage and transportation conditions:

1. Store in a cool, dry and well-ventilated warehouse. Keep away from fire and heat sources. Protect from direct sunlight. The packaging is sealed.

2. They should be stored separately from acids and food chemicals, and avoid mixed storage. Suitable materials should be available in the storage area to contain spills.
