Chemical Properties

Ammonium, also known as azanium acetate has the chemical formula C2H7NO2. This compound forms white crystals that are highly hygroscopic and can be recognised by a smell that resembles vinegar.

Its synthesis relies on ammonium carbonate or dry ammonia gas mixed with acetic acid. However, obtaining pure crystalline ammonium is extremely difficult as it loses ammonia very easily.


This product should be kept in a well-ventilated area and stored in its original container. When handling ammonium acetate, safety measures must be in place to avoid accidents. Inhalation of this compound may irritate the eyes and nose, or even cause a mild burn to the skin.

Mask, goggles and rubber gloves are advised during the handling of this compound, especially when large amounts of dust may be produced. Complete safety measures can be found on the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) which is available on our website.

Uses of Ammonium Acetate

This compound can be used in a variety of applications, including:

  • As a fungicide
  • As a bactericide
  • As a biodegradable de-icer
  • In dialysis for the protein purification system

Above all, it’s essential in many analytic processes because of its buffering capacity and its ability to precipitate proteins from solution.
