General description

Ammonium sulfate is an ammonium salt commonly used as fertilizer. It can be synthesized by neutralizing sulfuric acid with ammonia. It is reported to enhance the phytotoxicity of several herbicides like glyphosates. It is formed as a co-product during the manufacture of caprolactam, a precursor of nylon.

Application

Ammonium sulfate may be used in methyl cellulose precipitable tannin assay to examine wine tannin in finished wine samples. It may also be used in making externally mixed aerosols for analyzing the 1 × 3 tandem differential mobility analyzer (1 × 3-TDMA), which is mainly employed for determining the irreversibility of the hygroscopic growth factor of aerosol particles.

Quotes and Ordering

  1. How does Redi-Dri help keep salts and buffers free-flowing?

    Redi-Dri products are specially handled and the bottle is specially designed to ensure that the product will remain dry without adding impurities or additives to the product. Ensuring that you receive the highest quality material that is easy to handle.

  2. Are there any special storage conditions that must be maintained?

    No, Redi-Dri products can be stored under the same conditions as the equivalent non-Redi-Dri products.

  3. How long will material remain free-flowing after it is opened?

    While the exact amount of time your material will remain free-flowing can vary, this largely depends on the ambient storage conditions and how many times it is opened.
