Ammonia is one of the many chemicals present in cigarettes.

Ammonia is a chemical compound formed from the elements nitrogen and hydrogen. It has chemical formula: NH3.
At room temperature and pressure ammonia is a gas. It is toxic (poisonous), and corrosive to some materials, and has a strong and distinctive smell.

Major industrial uses of ammonia include the production of nitric acid, fertilizers and other chemicals. Ammonia is also used in toilet cleaning fluids and dry cleaning fluids. Ammonia solutions are used to clean, bleach, and deodorize, to etch aluminum, and in the manufacture of other chemicals.
