  • enzyme
  • Ammonia monooxygenase (EC 1.14.99.39, AMO) is an enzyme, which catalyses the following chemical reaction ammonia + AH2 + O2 ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } NH2OH + A + H2O Ammonia monooxygenase contains copper and possibly nonheme iron. (wikipedia.org)
  • In enzymology, an ammonia kinase (EC 2.7.3.8) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction ATP + NH3 ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } ADP + phosphoramide Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are ATP and NH3, whereas its two products are ADP and phosphoramide. (wikipedia.org)
  • The systematic name of this enzyme class is ATP:ammonia phosphotransferase. (wikipedia.org)

  • water
  • Dehydration from not drinking enough water can cause urine to smell like ammonia. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • The ammonia of the boracic acid works of Italy is also saved, and some establishments yield 3,300 lbs. of sulphate of ammonia every 24 hours, in addition to the boracic acid which is condensed in the water. (chestofbooks.com)

  • Partial adsorption of chloramines (from city supplied water) by GAC may liberate ammonia. (wqa.org)
  • The experiment consists of introducing water through an inlet to a container filled with ammonia gas. (wikipedia.org)
  • Ammonia dissolves into the water and the pressure in the container drops. (wikipedia.org)
  • A different gas of comparable solubility in water, such as hydrogen chloride, can be used instead of ammonia. (wikipedia.org)
  • As ammonia is a base, it is stabilized by alkaline water. (wikipedia.org)

  • 1971
  • The Vemork hydroelectric plant in Norway used its surplus electricity output to generate renewable ammonia from 1911 to 1971, requiring 15 MWh/Ton of nitric acid. (wikipedia.org)
  • urea
  • The ammonia test is used to detect an elevated level in the blood that can be caused by severe liver disease , kidney failure , Reye syndrome or a rare genetic disorder of the urea cycle, for example. (labtestsonline.org)
  • An ammonia level may also be ordered to help diagnose a rare urea cycle defect and to evaluate the severity of the condition. (labtestsonline.org)
  • caustic
  • When caustic soda is mixed with Chili saltpetre, much ammonia is liberated, which can be condensed and saved. (chestofbooks.com)
  • Although common in nature and in wide use, ammonia is both caustic and hazardous in its concentrated form. (wikipedia.org)
  • excess
  • If not processed by the liver and cleared from the body appropriately, excess ammonia can accumulate in the blood and pass from the blood into the brain, where it is toxic. (labtestsonline.org)
