- Production of Nitric Acid from Ammonia
In order to produce Nitric Acid from ammonia, a process known as Ostwald’s process is utilised. In this process, high temperature oxidation of anhydrous ammonia is carried out in the presence of platinum or rhodium gauze to produce nitric oxide. The obtained product then reacts with oxygen to give nitrogen dioxide, followed by its reaction with water to finally produce nitric oxide and Nitric Acid.
