Nitrous Oxide Supplier to Mexico

A colorless, sweet-tasting, oxidizing gas, Nitrous Oxide (N2O) has various commercial applications in Mexico, and AOC Mexico S.A. de C.V. is this area’s only distributor of preferred PurityPlus® N2O.

Nitrous Oxide was initially compounded in 1772 by Joseph Priestly, when he began dripping nitric acid on iron filings. As simple as that sounds, an even simpler technique for achieving more substantial measures of N2O was devised under the auspices of Humphry Davy in the late 1700s. It essentially introduces attentively administered heat to ammonium nitrate, which effects its decompostion into Nitrous Oxide and water. The majority of N₂O production depends on this technique, either directly or by a similar procedure that employs urea and a blending of sulfuric and nitric acids.

Nitrous Oxide is employed as an anesthetic, as a leak-detection gas, and as an oxidizing agent. It frequently shows up also as a propellant in aerosol cans for the pharmaceutical and food-and-beverage industries, most commonly in commercial whipped-cream dispensers.

N₂O has further application as a specialty oxidizing flame-support gas in atomic absorption (AA) instrumentation for metal analysis. When blended with particular perfluorinated hydrocarbons, it is used as a propellant/oxidizer in select special-application rocket guidance systems. And, at the highest levels of purity, Nitrous Oxide sees a fair amount of use in semiconductor production.
