Why ammonium nitride is not used in preparation of NH4?

You should be aware the ammonium is NH4. If you already have ammonium nitride, you don't need to prepare NH4 because you already have it, in a water soluble compound. Admittedly, ammonium nitrate is used more commonly than the nitride.

Is acetone used in the process of making ammonium nitrate?

No, it is not used, the industrial preparation of Ammonium Nitrate depends on simple neutralization reaction between ammonia (Base) and Nitric (Acid) giving Ammonium Nitrate. Even the process of prilling or granulation doesn't include addition of Acetone. I believe the Ammonium Nitrate Acetone mixture is hazard as it is a combination of strong oxidizer and highly inflammable substance. Regards;

No: Ammonium is a polyvalent cation that is not usually considered either an acid or a base. Ammonium hydroxide is a base that produces ammonium salts of the anions of an acid with which the ammonium hydroxide reacts.

Function of sodium acetate in DNA extraction?

Cellular and histone proteins bound to the DNA can be removed either by adding a protease or by having precipitated the proteins with sodium or ammonium acetate, or extracted them with a phenol-chloroform mixture prior to the DNA-precipitation. If desired, the DNA can be resolubilized in a slightly alkaline buffer or in ultra-pure water. Generally, the acetate-compound strength is high to keep up with the alkaline environment for keeping the DNA solubilised.
