(letter.) A compound radical, NH4, getting the chemical relations of a strongly basic element such as the alkali metals.
The nitrate of this base (known as nitron) is so insoluble that nitrates may be gravimetrically estimated with its help. These bases combine with the alkyl iodides to yield quaternary ammonium salts.
