No way to make it cheaper than the one you can buy, unless you are ready to invest a lot of money into the installation.
1- But I don't talk of making it that cheaper. I mean industrially it can be prepared using nitrate salts, so palatine has nothing to do with here. Thus it can be cheaper than the one produced using ammonia. I just need an available & cheaper catalyst.
I read on the link below that I can use copper as a catalyst!!:http://www.chem.umass.edu/demonstrations/chemReactions5_4.html
2-I have another question: can I instead burn ammonia using for example an Oxygen rich environment?..
3-I recalculated the concentration of Hydrogen peroxide needed, starting with the reaction equation:
If we use water, we get this result 2NO2 + H2O = HNO3 + HNO2
One thing to say, is that i don't really know how can i calculate its concentration here, but i guess it is about 57.27%..
If we use hydrogen peroxide, we get the result below:
2NO2 + H2O2 = 2HNO3
So apparently, I need a pure hydrogen peroxide.. Can i get a 100% concentrated peroxide??!!
Alternatively, can I use a strong oxidant such as potassium chlorate KClO3?
