Ammonia - NH3

Ammonia is, after sulphuric acid, the world's most produced industrial chemical. It is the starting substance for the production of fertilizers, nitric acid, plastics, and explosives among other things. 

Ammonia (NH3), is a colourless gas with a distinct smell that is hazardous in high concentrations. 

Ammonia is irritating to the mucous membrane and can in small amounts cause problems to the respiratory passage.
