Substance Information

The REACH registered substance data and the C&L Inventory portal will be upgraded from the 9th November.

Please be aware there may be intermittent unavailability while work in ongoing. The per substance REACH registration status will be made available as soon as possible thereafter. Likewise the per substance indication of harmonised C&L, Seveso directive, or notified C&L regulatory context will be made available as soon as possible.

Please note that it may take a week or two to have everything fully in place, and please be aware in the meantime that the Registration status may be incorrect and the CLP regulatory context may be incompletely shown.

Silver nitrate

EC / List no.: 231-853-9

CAS no.: 7761-88-8

Mol. formula: AgNO3

formula
GHS03: Oxidising GHS05: Corrosive GHS09: Hazardous to the Environment

Danger! According to the harmonised classification and labelling (ATP01) approved by the European Union, this substance causes severe skin burns and eye damage, is very toxic to aquatic life, is very toxic to aquatic life with long lasting effects and may intensify fire (oxidiser).

Additionally, the classification provided by companies to ECHA in REACH registrations identifies that this substance may cause fire or explosion (strong oxidiser) and may be corrosive to metals.

This substance has not been registered under the REACH Regulation, therefore as yet ECHA has not received any data about this substance from registration dossiers.

This substance is used in articles, by professional workers (widespread uses), in formulation or re-packing, at industrial sites and in manufacturing.
