Ammonium Nitrate

CAS RN:6484-52-2

Environmental Fate

Ammonium nitrate is quite soluble in water (250 g/100 mL at 20 deg C). Thus, if precipitation occurs prior to clean up, or if water is used to disperse the spilled chemical, the solution of ammonium nitrate produced can infiltrate the soil and migrate downward.
