i read something bout ammonium salts of non-oxidising acids and also ammonium salts of oxidising acids.

how to know where the acid is oxidising or non-oxidising. what's the difference?

One can look this up in oxidation-reduction potential tables.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

There is one compound, namely ammonium persulfate (NH4)2S2O8 which brokes the oxidation rules. Persulfate anion is a very strong oxidizer but not oxidises ammonia bound in its molecule..
