Ammonium Formate is the ammonium salt of formic acid. It is a colorless, hygroscopic, crystalline solid. Pure Ammonium Formate decomposes into formamide and water when heated, and this is its primary use in industry. Formic acid can also be obtained by reacting Ammonium Formate with a dilute acid, and since Ammonium Formate is also produced from formic acid, it can serve as a way of storing formic acid. Ammonium Formate is used in the manufacture of protease inhibitors and related drugs.
