For the amounts you would need to generate amonia, you would save a fortune buying it at a garden store. Just get amonium sulfate, you can get 5 pounds for about 5 dollars, with no questions asked. At a chem supply there is always a possibility of having to answer questions(no fun!). Even though amonia chloride and amonia sulfate are insanely common chems, dont put yourself through the hassle. This is just something thats just easier if its done OTC.

Yes you could, but how to do it without breaking the ampule of the ammonium nitrate? and also there is only a small amount of it in each pack....

The packs are also end up very expensive if you want a serious amount of ammonia as im gathering this person wants....

I believe he opted for avoiding the possibility of unfortunate questions, as suggested.

I'm sure he appreciated the advice.

just so people know there are different types of ice packs the ones i was refuring to has ammonium nitrate in the pack and water in the amplue so its easy to seperate. just cut it open and dump the ammonium nitrate pellets in a jar and throw the water ampule away...

Why bother making it
« Reply #6 on: August 11, 2004, 05:48:00 PM »
Helloo bbob, How are ya mate, Just a question mate, Why bother making Nh3, Swip has tried Mr_Clean's ammonia generator a few time's aswell as a few other methods described on this site & rhodium's and it is very fucking smelly, And the amount you get for the time you put in isent realy worth it unless only a little bit of Nh3 is needed, Not to mention it's a bitch to get it toatly anhydrous, But it is good practice because it teaches you how coutious you have to be with it.
Swip would sugest a chemical suit and a breathing mask when ever you expose your self to ammonia. ;)

different ideas

Howdy,  it seems to me there's a couple different schools of thought regarding the feasibility of making it yourself, and the relatively warm reception afforded a couple of the "easy, cheap, and safe" methods rolled out lately is enough to make a person consider giving it a try.
