Silver Nitrate


Silver Nitrate is an extremely useful raw material for making other silver salts; it is also a laboratory analytical reagent and an active pharmaceutical ingredient. Silver Nitrate is white crystalline powder that is extremely soluble in water. Spectrum prepares its silver nitrate by reaction of Silver metal with nitric acid. Silver Nitrate is available in a variety of purities and grades including those focused at industrial and synthetic uses (Technical), analytical laboratory and synthetic uses (Reagent ACS), and pharmaceutical and biotechnology uses (USP).

Silver Nitrate, Technical - A Silver Salt Raw Material


Silver Nitrate, a silver salt raw material, is the least expensive of the silver salts and is stable to light, non-hygroscopic, and the nitrate anion is easily replaced by other anions and ligands making it an excellent silver salt raw material. Depending upon end product purity requirements, either Silver Nitrate, Technical or Silver Nitrate, Reagent ACS, Crystal can be used as a silver salt raw material to synthetically produce other silver salt derivatives. Examples of silver salts that can be produced by Silver Nitrate are shown below:

Silver Nitrate, USP - Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API)


Silver Nitrate, USP, Crystal is also used as an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API). Silver Nitrate tends to be very toxic to bacteria and other lower life forms and is used for the removal of warts. Dentists sometimes use it infused in swabs to help heal mouth ulcers. Caution should be used since, taken internally, Silver Nitrate is a poison.

Silver Nitrate, USP also has a number of biotechnology uses such as for silver staining in histology for demonstrating reticular fibers, proteins and nucleic acids. It is also used to demonstrate proteins in PAGE gels and can be used as a stain in scanning electron microscopy.
