Physical Properties
  • Colorless and Odorless: Nitrogen protoxide is a colorless and odorless gas.

  • Anesthetic Effect: Provides mild anesthesia, increases pain threshold and induces relaxation.

  • Unstable at High Temperature: It is not stable at high temperatures and is therefore stored under pressure.

  • Thermal Decomposition of Ammonium Nitrate: Usually produced by thermal cracking of ammonium nitrate.

  • Industrial Processes: It can also be obtained from the reaction of nitrogen and oxygen in industrial processes.


Areas of Use
  • Dentistry Used as a local anesthetic in dentistry.

  • Surgical Interventions: Used in surgical interventions and painful procedures by providing mild anesthesia.

  • Food Industry: Can be used in the food industry to make cream.

  • Laughing Gas: Also known as "laughing gas" in medicine and other fields.


General Properties
  • Nitrogen gas can be converted into liquid nitrogen under high pressure. This can be used in freezing and refrigeration applications.


  • Expert Control: Nitrous prooxide should be controlled by qualified anesthesiologists.

  • Controlled Dosage: Dosage should be carefully controlled according to patient condition and type of procedure.
