-In several commercial cleaners. All cleaning products contain a proportion of ammonium hydroxide (approximately 5-10%). Also, diluted ammonium hydroxide can be used alone as a cleaner known as household ammonia.
-In textile and tobacco industry, in the manufacture of rubber, artificial silk, ink, lubricants, explosives, ceramics, etc.
-In electronic applications, through chemical vapor deposition (silicon nitride deposition) and in the manufacture of semiconductors.
-As refrigerator fluid, replacing chlorofluorocarbons (freon).
