Ammonium Chloride Properties

Ammonium Chloride



Ammonium chloride is, in its pure form, a clear white water-soluble crystalline salt of ammonia. The aqueous ammonium chloride solution is mildly acidic. The mineral is especially common on burning coal dumps, but also on some volcanoes. In biological applications ammonium chloride acts as a nitrogen source and is used in fertilizers, as a feed supplement for cattle and as an ingredient in nutritive media for yeast microbiological organisms. Ammonium chloride is used in the textile and leather industry in dyeing, tanning textile printing and to luster cotton. It is used as a flux in preparing metals to be tin coated, galvanized or soldered. It is used as an expectorant in cough medicine. It is also used as food additive.
