Silver Sulfate Powder Reagent Grade


Silver Sulfate, also known as Disilver(1+) Sulfate, Sulfuric Acid Disilver(I) salt, Disilver Monosulfate, and Disilver(1+) Sulfate, has the chemical formula Ag2SO4 or Ag2O4S. It appears as light-sensitive white to gray powder that undergoes color change on exposure to light. It possesses no odor and is partially soluble in Water, Alcohol, and Acids at ambient conditions. Chemicals in the Reagent Grade category have high purity and are best suited for analytical purposes. They're useful in research investigations as they produce consistent, trustworthy, and repeatable findings.

Silver Sulfate Chemical Properties And Reference Resources

Information About Silver Sulfate From Wikipedia

Silver sulfate (Ag2SO4) is an ionic compound of silver used in silver plating and as a non-staining substitute to silver nitrate. This sulfate is stable under ordinary conditions of use and storage, though it darkens upon exposure to air or light. It is minimally soluble in water.

Preparation And Structure Of Silver Sulfate

Silver sulfate is prepared by adding sulfuric acid to a solution of silver nitrate:

AgNO3 + H2SO4 → AgHSO4 + HNO3
2 AgHSO4 → Ag2SO4 + H2SO4 reversible reaction

The compound adopts the structure seen for anhydrous sodium sulfate.

Silver(II) sulfate
The synthesis of silver(II) sulfate (AgSO4) with a divalent silver ion instead of a monovalent silver ion was first reported in 2010 by adding sulfuric acid to silver(II) fluoride (HF escapes). It is a black solid that decomposes exothermally at 120 °C with evolution of oxygen and the formation of the pyrosulfate. 

More Information On Silver(I) sulfate From

Silver(I) sulfate is a white compound that is used in the silver plating process in an effort to replace silver cyanide. Research has shown that silver(I) sulfate is not as effective in silver plating as silver cyanide, and it doesn't produce the same high quality plating as silver cyanide.

Silver(I) sulfate is used for medicinal purposes. Silver is a documented antibacterial agent. Bandages used to cover woulds ranging from basic skin wounds to serious lacerations and skin abrasions are impregnated with silver compounds including silver sulfate. These bandages do not stick to the skin, which is a big relief to the patient!

Silver has the ability to kill bacteria cells, and the bandage prevents bacteria from coming in contact with the wound. Now let's investigate silver(II) sulfate. 

Silver Sulfate Dissociation 

Silver sulfate, Ag2SO4 , is considered insoluble in aqueous solution, which implies that a dissociation equilibrium between the dissociated ions and the undissolved solid is established when you dissolve the salt in water.
