1. Ammonium Sulfate is an inorganic substance, white or off-white particles, odorless, easily soluble in water, the aqueous solution is acidic, and insoluble in alcohol, acetone and ammonia.

2. Ammonium Sulfate reacts with barium chloride solution to produce barium sulfate precipitate. Ammonium Sulfate can also salt out proteins.

3. Ammonium Sulfate reacts with alkalis to release ammonia gas. Ammonium Sulfate is easy to absorb moisture and agglomerate, with strong corrosiveness and permeability. Ammonium Sulfate decomposes above 280℃ and is irritating. It is completely decomposed into ammonia, nitrogen, sulfur dioxide and water when heated to above 513°C.
