Ammonium Chloride has not been tested for its ability to cause cancer in animals. There is limited evidence that Ammonium Chloride may damage the developing fetus. may cause an asthma-like allergy. Future exposure can cause asthma attacks with shortness of breath, wheezing, cough, and/or chest tightness.Is ammonium chloride an acid base or neutral?
Weak acids and bases have strong conjugate bases and acids. For example, when ammonium chloride is dissolved in water, it gives an acidic solution because ammonium ion is a strong conjugate acid of the weak base ammonia, but chloride ion is a weak conjugate base of the strong acid hydrochloric acid.
