Chemical Description 

  • By far the principal use of nitric acid (80%) is in the manufacture of fertilizers. Of this 96% is used to make ammonium nitrate and calcium ammonium nitrate.
  • A relatively small amount of ammonium nitrate is used to make explosives.
  • Some nitric acid is used to make intermediates in the polymer industry, notably in the manufacture of hexanedioic acid (adipic acid) to make polyamides and TDI (toluene diisocyanate or methylbenzene diisocyanate) and dinitrobenzene two of a range of reagents used to make polyurethanes. Nitrobenzene is used to make aniline which is a key reagent for making dyes.
  • Nitric Acid (HNO3) is a clear, colorless to slightly yellow inorganic acid. It is a strong monobasic acid and a powerful oxidizing agent. Nitric acid with water forms a constant boiling mixture (azeotrope) which has 68 % HNO3 and boils at 121 °C.
  • Nitric acid (HNO3) is an extremely important chemical used in the manufacture of fertilizers and explosives.
  • Do not store near combustible materials. Do not store in direct sunlight. Keep the container closed when not in use.
  • Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Keep away from metals. Store away from alkalies. Separate from organic materials. Inspect periodically for damage or evidence of leaks or corrosion.
  • Nitric Acid (HNO3) is a clear, colorless to slightly yellow inorganic acid. It is a strong monobasic acid and a powerful oxidizing agent.
  • Nitric acid is a highly corrosive mineral acid. The pure compound is colorless, but older samples tend to acquire a yellow cast due to decomposition into oxides of nitrogen and water.
  • Most commercially available nitric acid has a concentration of 68% in water.
  • Nitric acid is the inorganic compound with the formula HNO3. It is a highly corrosive mineral acid.
  • Nitric acid is the primary reagent used for nitration – the addition of a nitro group, typically to an organic molecule. While some resulting nitro compounds are shock- and thermally-sensitive explosives, a few are stable enough to be used in munitions and demolition, while others are still more stable and used as pigments in inks and dyes. Nitric acid is also commonly used as a strong oxidizing agent.
