Ammonium Hydroxide (all grades)

CAS:  1336-21-6

 Synonyms:  Ammonia, Aqua; Ammonia Monohydrate; Aqua Ammonia.

Uses:  Adhesives & Sealants, Aerospace, Agriculture, Chemical Processing, Electronic & Electrical, Food Processing, Metal Working & Finishing, Textiles, Water Treatment

 Hazard:   TOXIC; inhalation, ingestion or skin contact with material may cause severe injury or death. Contact with molten substance may cause severe burns to skin and eyes. Avoid any skin contact. Effects of contact or inhalation may be delayed. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may be corrosive and/or toxic and cause pollution.  AMMONIUM HYDROXIDE reacts exothermically with acids. Evolves toxic gaseous ammonia with strong bases. Reacts extremely violently with dimethyl sulfate [NFPA 491M 1991]. Reacts with aqueous silver nitrate sodium hydroxide to give a black precipitate of silver nitride. Such a precipitate can explode on stirring. Aqueous ammonia and Hg react to form an explosive solid, likely a fulminate.
