Nitrogen N2

Nitrogen N2 is commonly utilized in the production of fertilizer and is also present in foods and beverages. Additionally, it can be utilized to treat a variety of medical disorders. However, it is essential to comprehend how the substance operates, as it might create severe health issues.


Among the different types of nitrogen, urea is the most commonly employed. It is a reactive organic nitrogen source applied to the surface of the soil. Urease, a common soil enzyme, then hydrolyzes the substance. This procedure produces a little-known byproduct, NO3-, which is lost. It is known that the resultant gas is harmful to bacterial cells. The gas has numerous other environmental and human health effects.

Nitrogen-containing fertilizers may also contain nitrite or nitrate in addition to urea. This is related to the susceptibility of urea to nitrification. Gas is an intermediate product that is susceptible to leaching. NO3- is also connected with the release of the strong greenhouse gas N2O.

N2O production is not a recent occurrence. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), anthropogenic nitrogen inputs account for sixty percent of N2O emissions. This greenhouse gas has 265-298 times the global warming potential of Carbon Dioxide. Agricultural practices, especially fertilizer use, are the greatest contributors to N2O emissions.

In addition to nitrite and nitrate, other nitrogen-related chemicals, such as urease inhibitors, can lower greenhouse gas emissions. Urease inhibitors differ from nitrification inhibitors in that their modes of action are distinct. In contrast to urease inhibitors, which are designed to limit the formation of ureic-N, nitrification inhibitors impede the nitrification process.
