Ammonia hydroxide

Asked June 21, 2017, 7:07 PM EDT

If I freeze a solution of ammonia hydroxide that is 28 percent by weight ammonia to water. Will the solution separate to frozen water and liquid ammonia on top of the frozen water. Second part is how much energy in kWh do you think it would take per gallon or litter to do this.

No the ammonium merely lowers the freezing point of the solution. They will not separate.

thanks, how much energy in kwh do you think it would take to separate a gallon of ammonia and water, and how would i do it so i have a solution of water and of ammonia in two separate container.

I think you would get quicker answers if you consulted a chemist who is familiar with the techniques and calculations. You should contact a local analytical laboratory who can quickly get you answers
