Production of Ammonia from Nitrogen Oxides

  1. Nov 12, 2009 #1
    Hi guys, i remember there is a process that produce ammonia from nitrogen oxides, either NO2 or NO but i couldn't remember the equation and couldn't find it online, all i get was haber process when the word ammonia is there. Anyone have any idea?

    I'm not sure, but this might be against the forum guidelines, since gaseous ammonia can be pretty dangerous. Why exactly are you interested in this process?

    You might be looking for this (unbalanced) equation:
    NO2 + H2O → O2 + NH3

    Sorry am still a student, but i thought this question might not fit into the homework area, what i was actually looking for was Nitration of Ammonia to form Nitrogen Oxide hehe.

    4NH3 + 5O2 <---> 6H2O + 4NO

    Nitration of ammonia? It doesn't make much sense.

    It would be even funnier with N2O between products.

    Yes, but not as relaxing.
