Ammonium hydroxide (NH4OH) is a common, though not entirely correct name for a solution of ammonia dissolved in water.

when dissolved in water ammonia reacts to a small degree with water to produce ammonium hydroxide (NH3 + H2O --> NH4OH). But this only forms in a small amount and most of the ammonia remains unreacted. This substance cannot be isolated as any attempt to separate it out will result in it reverting back to ammonia and water.
its the state that daisy go into after an animal has urinated on it
