Ammonia + calcium nitrate?


I was wondering does this equate as following:

Ca(NO3)2 + 2 NH4OH = Ca(OH)2 + 2 NH4NO3?

According to dynamics, calcium hydroxide should crash out from the solution after saturation (1.7g/L)?

So it should also follow as:

2 NaOH + Ca(NO3)2 = 2 NaNO3 + Ca(OH)2
2 KOH + Ca(NO3)2 + 2 KNO3 + Ca(OH)2

Na2CO3 + Ca(NO3)2 = 2 NaNO3 + CaCO3 (unbalanced, but would ions still act up as CaCO3 crashes out)

I was just wondering, because calcium nitrate is actually OTC for low price, but other nitrates are either not available or they are always mixed up with other gunk.

been working for me

In cold packs we get the mixed salt, to strip out the calcium I add a strong ammonia solution.

then dry, or make azeotropic nitric acid

I know a place here that sells pure calcium nitrate for 4.99 for 3lbs. would that be cheaper than cold packs. I do realize it would take more NH4OH, but I believe still cheaper than the cold packs.

looked every where here and nothing but cold packs.

I ordered 500grams of oxalic acid to make some catalyst beds and start making the shit I need!

we just need to ban terrorists so we can buy AN again, because banning some thing magically makes it never happen!
