Ammonium acetate (ammonium acetate) - a colorless crystalline material consisting of extremely hygroscopic crystals in the form of needles. At temperatures over 144 ° C decomposes to form reagent acetamide:
NH4CH3COO = CH3CONH2 + H2Ob
Highly soluble in water easily (58.6% at 4 ° C), soluble in ethanol.
Ammonium acetate (ammonium acetate) - the composition of the chemical compound NH4C2H3O2, can be obtained by reaction of acetic acid with ammonia. Under laboratory conditions, ammonium acetate can be obtained in the following manner: 80% CH3COOH in water cooling and vigorous stirring, 10% NH4OH solution until the liquid until the ammonia smell becomes strong. The solution is filtered, if necessary, and evaporated on a water bath until the film crystals. The precipitated crystals were sucked off on a Buchner funnel and immediately placed in a tightly closable jar.
Ammonium acetate (ammonium acetate) is readily available, relatively cheap and widely applicable
