Ammonium Hydroxide Applications
Ammonium hydroxide is simply a solution of ammonia in water. A common application for this solution is as a household cleaner, particularly popular to clean windows and other glass surfaces. It can be used by itself – usually a highly diluted solution – or as an ingredient in commercial products.
Industrial uses include as a precursor to produce alkyl amines. For example, ethylenediamine can be synthesised from ammonium hydroxide and 1,2-dichloroethane; while hexamethylenetetramine is the result of mixing ammonium hydroxide and formaldehyde.
This compound is also traditionally used to darken tannin-rich wood in furniture making. The wood is placed in a container with a solution of ammonium hydroxide, which reacts with the tannic acid found in the wood. This creates a natural dark stained look for the furniture.
In the lab, ammonium hydroxide is a common base in a qualitative inorganic analysis. For example, not only it can dissolve silver oxide, but it also causes a deep blue colouration in the presence of copper solutions.
