Description of key information

Silver nitrate is devoid of any chemical structures commonly associated with explosive properties, such as metal peroxides, peroxo-acid-anions, azides, and halogen oxides.) Whereas silver nitrate exhibits oxidising properties it is not combustible itself. Further, it is noted that despite long-term industrial use of the substance, it is not classified for explosive properties according to UN transport regulations. In consequence, no experimental verification is required and silver nitrate is considered to be non-explosive.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Silver nitrate is devoid of any chemical structures commonly associated with explosive properties, such as metal peroxides, peroxo-acid-anions, azides, and halogen oxides.) Whereas silver nitrate exhibits oxidising properties it is not combustible itself. Further, it is noted that despite long-term industrial use of the substance, it is not classified for explosive properties according to UN transport regulations. In consequence, no experimental verification is required and silver nitrate is considered to be non-explosive (no classification required).
