Ammonia occurs in the atmospheres of the outer giant planets such as Jupiter (0.026% ammonia), Saturn (0.012% ammonia), and in the atmospheres and ices of Uranus and Neptune.

Sodium amide can be prepared by the reaction of sodium with ammonia gas, but it is usually prepared by the reaction in liquid ammonia using iron(III) nitrate as a catalyst.

- Sodium amide

When dry ammonia gas is heated with metallic sodium it converts to sodamide, NaNH2.

IUPAC-sanctioned name for the anion NH2-.

IUPAC-sanctioned name for the anion NH2-.

The anion NH2- is the conjugate base of ammonia, so it is formed by the self-ionization of ammonia.

Examples include lithium amide, sodium amide, and potassium amide.

Soaps are weak bases formed by the reaction of fatty acids with sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide.

In chemistry, there are three definitions in common use of the word base, known as Arrhenius bases, Brønsted bases, and Lewis bases.

However, there are also other Brønsted bases which accept protons, such as aqueous solutions of ammonia (NH3) or its organic derivatives (amines).

This occurs typically in compounds such as butyl lithium, alkoxides, and metal amides such as sodium amide.
