Nitrapyrin is an organic compound with the formula ClC5H3NCCl3. It is a widely used nitrification inhibitor in agriculture as well as a soil bactericide and has been in use since 1974. Nitrapyrin was put up for review by the EPA and deemed safe for use in 2005. Since nitrapyrin is an effective nitrification inhibitor to the bacteria nitrosomonas it has been shown to drastically the reduce NO2 emissions of soil. Nitrapyrin is a white crystalline solid with a sweet odor and is often mixed with anhydrous ammonia for application.
Nitrification is the biological oxidation of ammonia or ammonium to nitrite followed by the oxidation of the nitrite to nitrate. The transformation of ammonia to nitrite is usually the rate limiting step of nitrification. Nitrification is an important step in the nitrogen cycle in soil. Nitrification is an aerobic process performed by small groups of autotrophic bacteria and archaea. This process was discovered by the Russian microbiologist Sergei Winogradsky.
Nitrification is important in agricultural systems, where fertilizer is often applied as ammonia. Conversion of this ammonia to nitrate increases nitrogen leaching because nitrate is more water-soluble than ammonia.
Nitrification also plays an important role in the removal of nitrogen from municipal wastewater. The conventional removal is nitrification, followed by denitrification. The cost of this process resides mainly in aeration (putting oxygen in the reactor) and the addition of an external carbon source (e.g., methanol) for the denitrification.
Nitrification can also exist in drinking water. In distribution systems, chloramines are used as the secondary disinfectant, the presence of free ammonia can act as a substrate for ammonia-oxidizing microorganisms. The associated reactions can lead to the depletion of the disinfectant residual in the system. The addition of chlorite ion into the chloramine-treated water has been shown to control the nitrification.
Together with ammonification, nitrification forms a mineralization process that refers to the complete decomposition of organic material, with the release of available nitrogen compounds. This replenishes the nitrogen cycle.
