Silver Sulphate (Ag2SO4) of Micron Platers
Description of the Product
What is Silver Sulphate?
Silver Sulfate (Ag2SO4) is an ionic compound of silver used in silver plating and as a non-staining substitute to Silver Nitrate. It 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 of Silver Sulphate:
Silver sulfate is prepared by adding sulfuric acid to a solution of silver nitrate:
AgNO3(aq) + H2SO4(aq) = AgHSO4(aq) + HNO3(aq)
2 AgHSO4(aq) <=> Ag2SO4(s) + H2SO4(aq) reversible reaction
It is then washed with hot water and preparation is under ruby red illumination.
