Description of key information

Additional information

Silver metal and silver-containing compounds will generate silver ions. Analytical methods do not differentiate between silver ions, and so the environmental fate section will therefore discuss the fate of silver in general. As an elemental substance silver cannot be degraded, but may be transformed between different phases, chemical species, and oxidation states.
