Silver Nitrate
Commercial Pure LR AR ACS Analytical Reagent Grade
Silver Nitrate

Silver nitrate is a poisonous colorless crystalline inorganic compound with chemical formula AgNO3 that becomes grayish black when exposed to light in the presence of organic matter and is used in manufacturing photographic film, silvering mirrors, dyeing hair, plating silver, and in medicine as a cautery and antiseptic. Silver nitrate is the least expensive salt of silver; it offers several other advantages as well. Silver nitrate is used in many ways in organic synthesis, e.g. for deprotection and oxidations. Ag+ binds alkenes reversibly, and silver nitrate has been used to separate mixtures of alkenes by selective absorption. In histology, silver nitrate is used for silver staining, for demonstrating reticular fibers, proteins and nucleic acids. It is also used as a stain in scanning electron microscopy. Silver salts have antiseptic properties. Dentists sometimes use silver nitrate infused swabs to heal oral ulcers. Silver nitrate is also used by some podiatrists to kill cells located in the nail bed. Silver nitrate is also used to cauterize superficial blood vessels in the nose to help prevent nose bleeds. There are several uses of Silver nitrate and are listed below.

Silver Nitrate tends to be very toxic to bacteria and other lower life forms.

In Photography
Very high purity Silver Nitrate is the starting material for all chemical based photography.

In Ceramics
Silver Nitrate is used when firing pottery in a kiln to make beautiful colors.

It is used in Inks, like indelible, permanent fabric marker pens Explosives. It prevents premature shrinking or dropping of buds and blooms, in cut flowers. (2.83% solution). It inhibits cut flowers from making ethylene, which causes them to ripen.

Our Silver Nitrate is new and freshly prepared. The powder has been crystallized and sifted. Store Silver Nitrate in its original dark brown glass bottle. Keep bottle in cabinet and away from sunlight. Pure Silver Nitrate is not light sensitive, however.

2. Composition/Information on Ingredients

Ingredient: Silver Nitrate
CAS No.: 7761-88-8
EINECS EC Number: 231-853-9
Percent: 90 - 100%

4. First Aid Measures

Inhalation: If Silver Nitrate is inhaled, remove to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If large quantities of this material are swallowed, call a physician immediately. Loosen tight clothing.
Skin Contact:
Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse.
Eye Contact: Check for and remove any contact lenses. In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention.

5. Fire Fighting Measures

Fire: Silver Nitrate is not combustible, but substance is a strong oxidizer and its heat of reaction with reducing agents or combustibles may cause ignition.
Explosion: Some nitrates may explode when shocked, exposed to heat or flame, or by spontaneous chemical reaction. Sealed containers may rupture when heated. Sensitive to mechanical impact.
Fire Extinguishing Media: Dry chemical, carbon dioxide, Halon, water spray, or fog. If water is used, apply from as far a distance as possible. Water spray may be used to keep fire exposed containers cool. Do not allow water runoff to enter sewers or waterways.
Special Information: Wear full protective clothing and breathing equipment for high-intensity fire or potential explosion conditions. This oxidizing material can increase the flammability of adjacent combustible materials.

6. Accidental Release Measures

Small Spill: Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in a convenient waste disposal container.
Large Spill: Oxidizing material. Stop leak if without risk. Avoid contact with a combustible material (wood, paper, oil, clothing...). Keep substance damp using water spray. Do not touch spilled material. Prevent entry into sewers, basements or confined areas; dike if needed. Call for assistance on disposal.

7. Handling and Storage

Keep Silver Nitrate in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage and moisture. Isolate from any source of heat or ignition. Avoid storage on wood floors. Separate from incompatibles, combustibles, organic or other readily oxidizable materials. Containers of Silver Nitrate may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (dust, solids); observe all warnings and precautions listed for the product.

8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

Airborne Exposure Limits:
OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL): 0.01 mg/m3 (TWA) as silver metal dust.
ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV): 0.01 mg /m3 (TWA) as soluble silver compounds.
NIOSH 0.01 mg/m3 TWA (as Ag) (listed under Silver soluble compounds).10 mg/m3 IDLH (as Ag) (listed under Silver soluble compounds).
Ventilation System: A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures as low as possible. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved):
For conditions of use where exposure to dust or mist is apparent and engineering controls are not feasible, a particulate respirator (NIOSH type N95 or better filters) may be worn. If oil particles (e.g. lubricants, cutting fluids, glycerin, etc.) are present, use a NIOSH type R or P filter. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator.
Skin Protection:
Wear impervious protective clothing, including boots, gloves, lab coat, apron or coveralls, as appropriate, to prevent skin contact.
Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles and/or full face shield where dusting or splashing of solutions is possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
