- Nirogen is a very unreactive gas, which tends to react very slowly, if at all.
- When nitogen and hydrogen react together, they form ammonia (NH3). This is called the Haber Process.
- N2 + 3H2 -> 2NH3
- The nitrogen comes from the air by fractional distillation.
- Hydrogen comes from the reaction of methane and steam.H2O + CH4 -> CO2 + 3H2
