Ammonia

Introduction

Ammonia (NH3) is a compound of nitrogen and hydrogen, with the formula NH3. It is a colourless and pungent gas. NH3 occurs naturally throughout the environment, in air, soil and water and is the only common alkali gas. It has a characteristic smell, but is highly reactive with acid gases, which can mask its presence.
