Ammonium Formate Properties

Ammonium Formate

Molecule Structure Image



Ammonium formate is the ammonium salt of formic acid. Pure ammonium formate decomposes into formamide and water when heated, and this is its primary use in industry. It can also be used in palladium on carbon reduction of functional groups. It can be used for reductive amination of aldehydes and ketones. It is also used as a buffer in high performance liquid chromatography, and is suitable for use with liquid chromatography/mass spectroscopy.
