–        Nitrogen is atomic number 7 on the Periodic Table of the Elements. Elemental Nitrogen in standard conditions is a colorless, tasteless, odorless gas, lightweight, high electronegativity, low melting/ boiling points. Atomic form is very reactive, under high pressure and temperature creates a structure similar to diamonds, liquid form is extremely cold (-196 degrees Celsius) and boils/ converts to gas above this temperature which is why it makes ‘fog’ at room temperature, solid forms have many crystalline modifications. Approximately 7th most abundant element in our solar system. Forms much of the surface of Pluto and outer moons of the solar system such as Triton (Neptunes largest moon) and 98% of Titan (Saturns largest moon). Makes up around 78% of Earth’s atmosphere even though in pure form it is an asphyxiator. Too much of it is an issue in the atmosphere so balance very important. The most abundant unbound element on Earth. Name is from Greek word ‘azotikos’ meaning ‘to choke/no life’. Found on Earth as a compound in biological life forms and deposits from atmospheric reactions. It needs to be taken from the atmosphere into a usable form which can happen naturally via lightning strikes and bacteria (nitrogen fixation) – now it can be taken up by plants then consumed by animals and so on. The nitrogen cycle moves element from air into ecosphere and back again, this can get thrown off balance by nitrogen products such as fertilizer which can get into water system and create havoc with algae blooms. It is responsible for the stench of decay off of decomposing organisms. Nitrogen is found in all living things, makes up amino acids which are the building blocks of protein used for RNA and DNA. It is the 4th most abundant element in the body after oxygen, carbon and hydrogen –makes up around 3% of our weight. Its different forms serve as building blocks and catalysts for many crucial processes in our bodies. It is a vital element for all life on Earth. Can cause decompression sickness (the bends) when divers emerge too quickly from depths and astronauts inside unpressurized aircrafts. Used to make fertilizers, cleaners, explosives, gas to kill people instead of lethal injection, aerosol propellant, chelating agent, give smaller bubbles in beer, refrigerant, high strength fabric (Kevlar), inflate aircraft tires, liquid is cryogenic so used to kill warts and cysts on skin – dangerous trend to use in ‘fog cocktails’, preservative as a gas in salad bags for example, superglue, gunpowder, pharmaceuticals, caffeine and morphine (plant form), lighting, steel, amphetamines, fireworks, batteries, laughing gas (painkiller), fuel (NOS), nuclear reactor heating/cooling applications. Industrial nitrogen fixation processes account for the fertilizer made to grow over half the world’s food supply. Ammonium chloride  used since at least 554 AD in China. In the middle ages alchemists knew it as ‘aqua fortis’ (strong water), salt forms, nitric and hydrochloric acid known as ‘aqua regla’ (royal water) revered for its ability to dissolve gold which was considered the ‘King of Metals’. It bonds to almost all the elements on periodic table except the first three noble gases helium, neon and argon and some of the short lived elements after bismuth. Creates an enormous number of varied and useful compounds. It is responsible for the purple and blue colors of the aurora borealis.
