Project Information at a Glance

  • Nitrous oxide, is a colorless, almost odorless gas, that was first discovered in 1793 by the English scientist and clergyman Joseph Priestley.
  • The structure of the nitrous oxide molecule is a linear chain of a nitrogen atom bound to a second nitrogen atom, which in turn is bound to an oxygen atom. It can be considered a resonance hybrid of N=N+-O- and -N=N+=O.
  • Nitrous oxide is most commonly made by fusing and "boiling" ammonium nitrate to form steam, nitrous oxide, nitrogen, ammonium nitrate 'fog' and small amounts of very toxic higher oxides of nitrogen.
  • Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a dissociative that can cause analgesia, euphoria, dizziness, flanging of sound, and, in some cases, slight hallucinations and mild aphrodisiac effect.
  • Nitrous oxide drug is often mislabeled as an 'inhalant', implying it bears a relation to substances such as glue, gasoline, or aerosol sprays. The drug currently (as of 2005) enjoys moderate popularity in some countries. It was often sold at Grateful Dead and Phish concerts.
  • Nitrous oxide can cause dizziness, dissociation, and temporary loss of motor control, it is unsafe to inhale while standing up. Inhalation directly from a tank poses serious health risks, as it can cause frostbite since the gas is very cold when released.
  • The gas is extremely soluble in fatty compounds. In aerosol whipped cream, it is dissolved in the fatty cream until it leaves the can, when it becomes gaseous and thus creates foam.
  • Nitrous oxide can also be used in a monopropellant rocket. In the presence of a heated catalyst, N2O will decompose exothermically into nitrogen and oxygen, at a temperature of approximately 1300 degrees celsius.
  • The application of nitrogen based fertilizers in many areas has been excessive, with large proportions of the added fertilizer providing no benefit to crop yield, but inducing elevated nitrous oxide emissions.
  • N2O is widely used clinically because of its good analgesic properties; however, it is a relatively weak anesthetic, requiring high volume percent and hyperbaric conditions to achieve the minimal alveolar concentration for anesthesia.
  • The major safety hazards of nitrous oxide come from the fact that it is a compressed liquefied gas, and a dissociative anaesthetic. While normally inert in storage and fairly safe to handle, nitrous oxide can decompose energetically and potentially detonate if initiated under the wrong circumstances. Liquid nitrous oxide acts a good solvent for many organic compounds; liquid mixtures can form somewhat sensitive explosives.
  • Nitrous oxide breaks down into nitrogen and oxygen at elevated temperatures, such as those found in automotive and rocket engines. It greatly improves combustion by making more oxygen available to the combustion process.
