Nitrogen Dioxide Supplier to Mexico This brownish, potentially deadly, corrosive, liquefied PurityPlus® gas does have its uses, commercially, and AOC Mexico S.A. de C.V. can deliver it quickly to Mexico businesses. Nitrogen Dioxide (NO₂) is produced as an atmospheric contaminant by the combustion of fossil fuels in excess oxygen; at high combustion temperatures, the oxygen not ignited with the fuel reacts with the nitrogen from the air to produce nitric oxide (NO) and, in combination with increased oxygen and heat, is further oxidized to NO₂. For commercial use, Nitrogen Dioxide is achieved via the oxidation of ammonia at well-moderated temperatures in a steam-rich environment. Nitrogen Dioxide’s most frequent use is in rocket motors, more appropriately in its dimerized state as N₂O₄ (Nitrogen Tetroxide, NOM 4). In this form, it is reacted with hydrazine to produce propulsion. These liquefied gases , not being cryogenic fluids, are ideally suited to extended storage in space because there’s no danger of excessive venting from boil-off. They are used to place motors in orbiting satellites that may need repositioning at some future date. NO₂ is also useful as an oxidizing agent in organic synthesis and in select applications as a sterilizing atmosphere. Used as a specialty gas, NO₂ is frequently a component in calibration gases for environmental emission and industrial hygiene scrutiny. Have questions about PurityPlus® Nitrogen Dioxide or its uses?
