• nitrogen dioxide
  • Free radical reactions catalyzed by ultraviolet light from the sun oxidize unburned hydrocarbons to aldehydes, ketones, and dicarbonyl compounds, whose secondary reactions create peroxyacyl radicals, which combine with nitrogen dioxide to form peroxyacyl nitrates. (wikipedia.org)
  • methyl nitrate
  • The first procedure is not preferred due to the great explosion danger presented by the methyl nitrate vapour. (wikipedia.org)
  • Methyl nitrate is a sensitive explosive. (wikipedia.org)
  • The sensitivity of methyl nitrate to initiation by detonation is among the greatest known, with even a number one blasting cap, the lowest power available, producing a near full detonation of the explosive. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] Despite the superior explosive properties of methyl nitrate, it has not received application as an explosive due mostly to its high volatility, which prevents it from being stored or handled safely. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] As well as being an explosive, methyl nitrate is toxic and causes headaches when inhaled. (wikipedia.org)
  • Alkyl
  • Alkyl nitrates are employed as reagents in organic synthesis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Originally thought to be a pollutant, formed mainly by the combustion of fossil fuels, recent analysis of ocean water samples reveal that in places where cool water rises from the deep, the water is saturated with alkyl nitrates, likely formed by natural processes. (wikipedia.org)
  • ethyl
  • Ceric nitrate is quite soluble in non polar solvents such as ethyl ether. (wikipedia.org)
  • The refolding action was explained as follows: The ethyl group of ethylammonium nitrate interacts with the hydrophobic part of the protein and thereby protects it from intermolecular association, whereas the charged part of EAN stabilizes the electrostatic interactions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Ethyl nitrate is found in the atmosphere, where it can react with other gases to form smog. (wikipedia.org)
  • Ethyl nitrate has been prepared by bubbling gaseous nitryl fluoride through ethanol at −10 °C. The reaction was subsequently studied in detail. (wikipedia.org)
  • compounds
  • Beryllium nitrate is a toxic chemical, like all other beryllium compounds. (wikipedia.org)
  • They are nitrates produced in the thermal equilibrium between organic peroxy radicals by the gas-phase oxidation of a variety of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), or by aldehydes and other oxygenated VOCs oxidizing in the presence of NO2. (wikipedia.org)
  • The second major application of nitrates is as oxidizing agents, most notably in explosives where the rapid oxidation of carbon compounds liberates large volumes of gases (see gunpowder for an example). (wikipedia.org)
  • nitrosamines
  • This is due to the potential for the formation of nitrosamines when nitrates are present in high concentrations and the product is cooked at high temperatures. (wikipedia.org)
  • inhibit
  • Nitrates inhibit the blood's ability to carry oxygen and can be harmful, especially for pregnant women, infants and people with blood diseases. (fresnobee.com)
  • accumulate
  • Nitrates accumulate on land through marine-fog precipitation and sea-spray oxidation/desiccation followed by gravitational settling of airborne NaNO3, KNO3, NaCl, Na2SO4, and I, in the hot-dry desert atmosphere. (wikipedia.org)
  • water
  • Ground water tests indicated that nitrates had exceeded the maximum contamination level for the area. (k-state.edu)
  • Nitrates in drinking water are a concern as levels as little as 10 milligrams per liter of water can cause methemoglobinemia, a blood disorder frequently called 'blue baby syndrome' which affects children especially under the age of five. (k-state.edu)
  • Nitrates of 20.ppm or more also require a large water change. (aquaticcommunity.com)
  • Nitrates are one of the major problems of water pollution. (botanical-online.com)
  • The best way is cooking them in water, so that it dissolves the nitrate content. (botanical-online.com)
  • I have been testing the water for 3 weeks and the Nitrates would not surpass 10. (aquaticcommunity.com)
  • If I remember correctly, natural sea water has around 0.3 ppm of nitrate. (aquaticcommunity.com)
  • A report with results of that study shows water in those wells -- a backup water supply for Morro Bay -- reaching nitrate levels about four times the drinking water standard. (fresnobee.com)
  • Concerns of nitrate contamination surfaced in November 2006, when the city temporarily halted use of state water during annual maintenance and reverted to those wells for drinking water. (fresnobee.com)
  • City Attorney Rob Schultz said the excess nitrates could pose a health risk not only to Morro Bay residents, but also to property owners in the Morro Valley -- an area southeast of town near Highway 41 -- who use the wells as a source of drinking water. (fresnobee.com)
  • In the meantime, Schultz said Morro Bay would work with the regional water board, the county agricultural commissioner and affected property owners to find ways to stem the nitrate pollution. (fresnobee.com)
  • An open source photometer as been developed for this method to accurately detect nitrate in water, soils, forage, etc. (wikipedia.org)
  • At 150 °C the hexahydrate loses water of crystallization to make a trihydrate, which itself decomposes above 200 °C. Cerous nitrate hexahydrate has pinacoidal triclinic crystals. (wikipedia.org)
  • 2016
  • Text messages issued to those farmers who were approaching the limits in 2016 and receipt of such a text should act as a reminder to those farmers to consider applying for a Nitrates Derogation this year. (independent.ie)
  • saltpeter
  • By the 15th century, Europeans referred to it as saltpeter and later as nitrate of potash, as the chemistry of the compound was more fully understood. (wikipedia.org)
  • viable
  • NO3- (inorganic nitrate) is the viable active component within beetroot juice and other vegetables. (wikipedia.org)
  • Hydroxylammonium Nitrate (HAN) based propellants are viable and effective solution for future green propellant based missions, as it offers 50% higher performance for a given propellant tank compared to commercially used Hydrazine. (wikipedia.org)
  • dizziness
