Properties: Light yellow powder when freshly pptd, but becomes darker on drying and on exposure to light. Dec at about 220° into Ag2O and CO2 and at higher temp into metal Ag. d 6.08. Sol in 30,000 parts cold water, 2000 parts boiling water; readily sol in dil nitric acid, ammonia, or alkali cyanides. Protect from light.
Density: d 6.08
Use: Mild oxidizing agent for conversion of alcohols to aldehydes and ketones. Biological stain.
