Preparation of Ammonium Sulfate (NH4)2SO4

Ammonium sulfate occurs naturally from the mineral mascagnite in volcanic fumaroles & due to coal fires on some dumps.Ammonium sulfate is formed by adding finely divided gypsum to an ammonium carbonate solution.

(NH4)2CO3 + Ca
SO4 → (NH4)2SO4 + Ca

Ammonium sulfate is also formed by treating ammonia with sulphuric acid.

2 NH3 + H2SO4 → (NH4)2SO4

Chemical Properties of Ammonium Sulfate (NH4)2SO4

Ammonium sulfate decomposes upon heating above 250 °C, forming ammonium bisulfate. Heating at higher temperatures results in decomposition into ammonia, nitrogen, sulfur dioxide, và water.
