Nitric Oxide Supplier to Western Michigan GTW is happy to make PurityPlus® Nitric Oxide (NO), a colorless, nonflammable but toxic oxidizing gas, available for professional use in Western Michigan. Nitric Oxide is created as a pollutant through the combustion of fossil fuels in the presence of excess oxygen. It is also generated by the direct reaction of atmospheric nitrogen to oxygen during electrical storms. For the commercial market, all high-purity Nitric Oxide is produced by the oxidation of ammonia by means of a platinum catalyst and heat. Small measures of NO can be generated in the laboratory by reducing diluted nitric acid with copper. Most of the Nitric Oxide produced is used as an intermediate in the manufacture of concentrated nitric acid. High-purity Nitric Oxide is used in calibration standards for environmental emission monitoring, industrial hygiene monitors, and trace impurity analyzers. NO finds use also in gas mixtures to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension and is increasingly being used in many pharmacological research applications in which vasodilation acts as a type of pain reduction.
