Sorry. Quick question. Is ammonia a volatile? i.e. will it evaporate to nothing leaving no residue?
Anhydrous ammonia certainly will. And will do so with a very strong odor and a actual, physical assultiveness. And enough pressure to blow up a poorly chosen container. Cops and/or cameras on tanks a very real possibility. So you gotta ask yourself one question. Do you feel lucky?
Will it evaporate leaving no residue? If it's pure, of course. It's boiling point is -33.34 °C. Even if mixed in with water, it will fully evaporate with the water.
It's a pretty nasty gas.
