Ammonium Bicarbonate

Ammonium bicarbonate meets the highest requirements for various applications, particularly as a food additive as a leavening agent for dry baked goods. Ammonium Bicarbonate is also used in technical applications for the synthesis of catalysts, as a blowing agent for foamed plastic or as a nitrogen donator for yeast cultures.

Ammonium Carbonate

Ammonium carbonate is an important basic material for various applications. It serves as a leavening agent for food, foaming agent for the production of expanded material, as ingredient for shampoos or for the dyeing of textiles. Furthermore, ammonium carbonate is used for analytical purposes in the chemical industry.

Ammonium Carbamate

Ammonium carbamate is an important intermediate for the production of urea. It is used for the denitrification of exhaust emission and as decomposition stabilizer. For most applications, ammonium carbamate substitutes ammonia. BASF offers crystal ammonium carbamate that always meets highest standards regarding quality and purity. The product's short shelf life restricts use in some regions.

Ammonium Chloride

Ammonium chloride is a versatile technical salt used in many applications. It serves as an aroma chemical in food manufacturing. Additionally, industrial uses include production of dry-cell batteries, cleaning agents, and water treatment chemicals. Furthermore, ammonium chloride serves as acidity regulator in animal food or as an additive for the tanning of leather. BASF provides ammonium chloride in various grades, with manufacturing and regulatory certificates applicable to food and feed applications.

Ammonium Sulfate

Ammonium sulfate is a versatile technical salt, used in various applications. It is used for the production of fire extinguisher powders, as nutrient for microorganisms or as hardener for chip board manufacturing. Furthermore, ammonium sulfate serves for the production of flame resistant textiles or papers.
