Ammonium carbonate sour пищ. 2836991700
Ammonium carbonate ammonium carbonate, (NH4) 2CO3, salt, colorless crystals. Let's well dissolve in water.
Very unstable both in air and in solution, because already at room temperature it releases ammonia, turning into ammonium bicarbonate NH4HCO3. At t 60 В° C, it rapidly decomposes into NH3, CO2 and H2O. This process, associated with the evolution of gases, is based on the use of A. to. Instead of yeast in the baking and confectionery industry.
A. to. Is obtained by the interaction of gaseous NH3, CO2 and H2O with rapid cooling of the reaction products. The technical product contains, along with (NH4) 2CO3, the compound NH4HCO3 with ammonium carbamate NH4HCO3 ? NH4COONH2.
