Heated in a current of carbon dioxide sodamide yields caustic soda and cyanamide, and with nitrous oxide it gives sodium azoimide; it deflagrates with lead or silver nitrate and explodes with potassium chlorate.
The first products of this reaction are copper nitrate and nitric oxide, but, as the concentration of the copper nitrate increases, nitrous oxide and, eventually, free nitrogen are liberated.
One of his first discoveries at the Pneumatic Institution on the 9th of April 17 9 9 was that pure nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is perfectly respirable, and he narrates that on the next day he became "absolutely intoxicated" through breathing sixteen quarts of it for "near seven minutes."
The commercial production of sulphuric acid imperatively requires that the nitrogen oxides (which originally were always introduced in the shape of nitric acid) should be available as long as possible, before being lost mechanically or by reduction to the inactive forms of nitrous oxide or elementary nitrogen.
rend., 1892, 114, p. 1429) obtained it by acting with nitrous oxide on metallic iron at 200°, and Tissandier by heating the metal to 900 in carbon dioxide; Donau (Monats., 1904, 25, p. 181), on the other hand, obtained a magnetic and crystalline-ferroso-ferric oxide at 1200°.
A typical member is nitric oxide; carbon monoxide and nitrous oxide may also be put in this class, but it must be remembered that these oxides may be regarded, in some measure at least, as the anhydrides of formic and hyponitrous acid, although, at the same time, it is impossible to obtain these acids by simple hydration of these oxides.
Wislicenus (Berichte, 1892, 25, p. 2084) has prepared the sodium salt by passing nitrous oxide over sodamide at high temperatures.
amino acid arginine, which is the precursor for the formation of nitrous oxide in the tissue circulation.
Nitrous Oxide as an anesthetic Nitrous oxide found a more scientific use as an anesthetic in clinical dentistry and medicine in the early 1840s.
Formula 4 Feet contains the amino acid arginine, which is the precursor for the formation of nitrous oxide in the tissue circulation.
diffusion hypoxia Nitrous oxide is forty times more soluble in blood than nitrogen.
Mode of Action Nitrous oxide suppresses spinal impulses and may supress supraspinal pathways.
liquefyom temperature, nitrous oxide is a gas, but it is easily liquefied and stored under pressure.
nitrate reductase and emissions of nitrous oxide from soils.
We have learned that intensively managed pasture produces far more nitrous oxide than was suspected.
uses nitrous oxide is predominately used as a background anesthetic due to its weaker anesthetic properties.
At private parties, oxygen tanks are rarely supplied, and people have died of asphyxiation by breathing straight nitrous oxide through face masks.

These chargers contain liquid nitrous oxide under great pressure.
The revised IPCC Guidelines document  was used to give a range of emission factors for nitrous oxide.
This method does not give a pure gas, varying amounts of nitrous oxide and nitrogen being present (see Nitric Acid).
It is customary to use oxygen in combination with chloroform, or nitrous oxide in order to produce insensibility to pain (see Anaesthetics).
