Anhydrous ammonia (NH3) is produced by the Haber-Bosch process that involves combining hydrogen and nitrogen under heat and pressure with the presence of a catalyst.

Urea is produced commercially by the dehydration of ammonium carbamate at elevated temperature and pressure. Ammonium carbamate is obtained by direct reaction of ammonia with carbon dioxide. These reactions are normally carried out simultaneously in a high pressure reactor.

Ammonium nitrate is produced by the reaction of nitric acid with anhydrous ammonia.

UAN, commonly known as 32-0-0, is actually the combination of urea (U) and ammonium nitrate (AN) with water.
