Video description:

In this video we obtain ammonium nitrate from instant cold packs. Ammonium nitrate is useful for making potassium nitrate, sodium nitrate and nitric acid. In the past they could be obtained directly from instant cold packs as clean white crystals but now I find they're mixed with dirt and other fillers. To obtain just the ammonium nitrate we dissolve it first in water. The internal water packet in the cold pack is enough for this. Then we simply filter and evaporate. If your cold pack is already pure then you don't have to do this. This is just for those cases where you have fillers. Related Videos: Make Sodium nitrate: Make Potassium nitrate: Donate to NurdRage!
