For every No1 the is also a No2! The problem is that most people are unaware of the many, many different oxides on nitrogen. From N2O nitrous oxide to NO nitric oxide and NO2 nitrate.

As you might expect, they all have different properties and all of these compounds are biological active – they have effects within the human body.

Nitric Oxide is used within the body as a free radical messenger – but you’ll probably know it as a nutritional supplement for body builders. The reality is that the supplement does not actually contain the gas NO2 at all – but other chemicals and amino acids that are made up of (amongst other things) nitric oxide.

On the other hand N2O is nitrous oxide as used in rockets, cars and whipping cream. Once again this is often confused and is smetimes referred to as NOS – which is yet another, entirely different gas comprising nitrogen and oxygen.
