AMMONIUM SULFATE is an inorganic salt and Arena Petro Gas is in position to supply and export it directly from URMIA PETROCHEMICAL through its trading services according to the following specification and technical properties.
Ammonium sulfate is an inorganic salt that has many commercial uses:
One of the main uses of ammonium sulfate is as a fertilizer for alkaline soils. It provides nitrogen and sulfur, two essential nutrients for plant growth. It also lowers the pH of the soil by releasing ammonium ions that form a small amount of acid. Ammonium sulfate fertilizer contains 21% nitrogen and 24% sulfur.
Another use of ammonium sulfate is as an agricultural spray adjuvant for water-soluble insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides. It helps to bind iron and calcium cations that are present in both well water and plant cells, and to enhance the effectiveness of the pesticides. Ammonium sulfate is also used in laboratory applications, such as protein purification by precipitation. As the ionic strength of a solution increases, the solubility of proteins decreases. Ammonium sulfate is highly soluble in water and can "salt out" proteins by precipitation. The precipitated proteins can be separated by centrifugation and solubilized using standard buffers.
One of the industries that uses ammonium sulfate is the rubber industry. Ammonium sulfate is used to precipitate rubber from latex and to analyze the volatile fatty acids in rubber.
