It finds use in gum, spray, and lozenges to prevent smokers from smoking. When mixed with smoke, silver acetate creates an unpleasant metallic taste in the smoker's mouth, thus prevent them from smoking. It is a reagent in the laboratory as a source of silver ions lacking an oxidizing anion. It is a reagent for direct ortho-arylation, and for conversion of organohalogen compounds into alcohols. Woodward cis-hydroxylation reaction employs silver acetate and iodine for selective conversin of alkenes into cis-diols. Silver acetate is the more preferred reagent for facile carbonylation of primary and secondary amines. It is also employed in the preparation of highly reflective, conductive silvered polymer films.
