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.
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.
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 Study.com
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, 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.
