REFERENCE SECTION: USES of INDUSTRIAL INORGANIC CHEMICALS Chemical and Engineering News, a publication of the American Chemical Society, provides annual rankings of the top 50 industrial chemicals produced in the United States; 12 of the top 18 are inorganic, whereas the remaining 6 are organic.* A notable absence from these rankings is dihydrogen; although produced in vast quantities, this gas is usually used in the industrial plant where it is generated.
Complete the Table below, which summarizes the principal uses of the top 13 industrial inorganic chemicals produced, by inserting the name of the correct chemical from this list: Ammonia; Ammonium nitrate; Carbon dioxide; Dichlorine; Dihydrogen; Dinitrogen; Dioxygen; Lime (Calcium oxide and Calcium hydroxide); Nitric acid; Phosphoric acid; Sodium carbonate; Sodium hydroxide; Sulfuric acid.
REFERENCE SECTION: MANUFACTURE of INDUSTRIAL INORGANIC CHEMICALS Complete the Table below, which summarises the manufacture of the top industrial inorganic chemicals produced, by inserting the name of the correct process from this list: combustion; cracking; dehydrogenation; electrolysis; filtration; fractional distillation; neutralization; oxidation; reduction; thermal decomposition.
