Commercial grades Reagent grade nitric acid is 68–71% in water. Grades over 80% are called “fuming” nitric acid. Special concentration blends are available. Uses The largest use is in the manufacture of fertilizers. ) and the starting materials for polyurethane elastomers and paints. Manufacture Ammonia is burned over a catalyst to a mixture of nitrogen oxides which when reacted with water produces nitric acid. R. Simplot Co. Nitric acid is the principal reagent (chemical reactant) used to introduce nitrogen into other chemicals for not only the uses listed but also for dye and pharmaceutical intermediates, agricultural chemicals, and many others.

Elsewhere in the world it is made by the “Solvay” process, which uses limestone and salt as raw materials. Calcium chloride is a byproduct of the Solvay process. , Solvay Minerals, General Chemical, OCI Wyoming, IMC, TG Soda Ash. Less than half as much energy is needed to recover sodium carbonate from ores as it is to make it synthetically. The environmental impact is also less. S. Sodium carbonate undergoes many of the same reactions as sodium hydroxide, for example, the formation of salts when contacted with acids.

Carbon is unique because: • Each atom combines with four other atoms • Forms chains of atoms: Open chains Closed chains (rings) Combination of open and closed chains • Combines with atoms of other elements Organic compounds make up more than 95% of all the chemical compounds known to exist. One reason for this is that carbon is unlike all other elements. It can form chemical bonds to connect (become bonded) with four other atoms. This ability to connect with other atoms (form bonds) is called valence.
