Description of key information

Silver nitrate is a solid inorganic substance, and consists of colourless to white, odourless crystals. The melting point is 212°C and decomposes in the approximate temperature range from 250 – 440°C. According to reliable factual databases, the relative density of solid silver nitrate is 4.35. The average mean particle diameters (D50) is appro. 375 µm and a very low dustiness of 0.83 mg/g. Furthermore, silver nitrate is readily soluble in water (2150 g/L at 20°C), in which it dissolves into ions, which cannot evaporate. Finally, silver nitrate is assumed to be "very soluble" and the higher figure may be used for chemical safety assessment.
