AMMONIA IN AQUEOUS SOLUTION (Liquor Ammonia)

Anhydrous Ammonia dissolved in water is Liquor Ammonia. Commercial Grade pertains to achieving Specific Gravity 0.900 widely accepted as 25% solution at room temperature. Retains all the physical and chemical properties of Anhydrous Ammonia. (for details refer Anhydrous Ammonia)

Mostly transported in HDPE containers of various sizes and capacities. For Bulk consumers supply in Raod Tankers is ideal, minimizing the risk of frequent handling of this Hazardous and Toxic solution.

MONO METHYLAMINE

ANHYDROUS METHYLAMINES: (Mfg: by RCF, Mumbai)

Physical Constants :

  • Amine contents % by wt. min. 99.5
  • Water % by wt. max 0.5
  • Ammonia % by wt. max 0.1
  • Other Amines % by wt. max 0.40

AQUEOUS SOLUTION SPECIFICATIONS:

  • Ammonia Traces
  • MMA by wt. 40.0 min
  • DMA by wt. 0.02
  • TMA by wt. 0.01

The Chemical properties of Methylamines are derived from the reactivity of the amino group which serves as a convenient means to introduce monomethyl, dimethyl or trimethyl amino groups into various organic compounds. As such they are valuable starting materials for organic compounds where N-methyl groups have to be introduced at specific positions.

DIMETHYLAMINE

ANHYDROUS METHYLAMINES (Mfg: RCF, MUMBAI)

  • Amine Contents % by wt. min. 99.5
  • Water % by wt. max. 0.5
