1. A process for synthesizing ammonia, comprising:

  • providing a vessel containing an adsorbant that adsorbs ammonia in preference to H2 and N2; and

    bringing H2 and N2 together in the vessel under conditions where the H2 and the N2 react at a rate sufficient to bring about significant conversion to ammonia within the vessel;

    wherein ammonia is adsorbed by the adsorbant simultaneously with the reaction and the adsorbant captures ammonia and thereby enhances the net conversion of H2 and N2 to ammonia.
