About the book

The aim of this book is to review an important subject related to environment and industry that is "Ammonia - Properties and Use”: Ammonia can be seen in two general ways, chemical and biological. The main topics of this book can be summarized in the beginnings, the effect and the fate of ammonia. So, the beginnings start from the natural and industrial sources. With this beginning, a typical question can be answered about global warming that enforced scientists to search and research about catalytic oxidation with chemical materials with high efficiency. The other concept of catalytic oxidation of ammonia is biological treatment.
