The Bosch Haber process. You can find your own links.


This is a high pressure process for the reaction:

#N_2 + 3H_2 rightleftharpoons 2NH_3#

The reaction is normally carried out at 200 atm and high temperatures, and catalyzed on metal or metal oxide surfaces. It is one of the most important industrial reactions, in that without such a reaction we would not be able to grow food.
