    Brief Overview

    Ammonium carbonate is a salt that was the predecessor of baking soda and baking powder.


    Manufacturing Process

    Ammonium carbonate may be manufactured in two ways:

    • Sublimation of a mixture of ammonium sulfate and calcium carbonate

                                                               (NH4)2SO4 + CaCO3 → (NH4)2CO3 + CaSO4

    • Gaseous carbon dioxide is passed into an absorption column containing aqueous ammonia solution causing distillation. Vapors containing ammonia, carbon dioxide, and water condense to form a solid mass of crystals.

                                                                         2 NH3 + CO2 + H2O → (NH4)2CO3
