Silver nitrate 0.1N standard volumetric solution is used for volumetric analysis in laboratories. It is widely used as an analytical reagent owing to its immediate reaction with halide ions forming insoluble precipitate of silver(I) halides.
Forms complexes with alkenes, used in the separation of mixtures; see, e.g.: Org. Synth. Coll., 5, 315 (1973).
Promotes the reactivity of NCS in the cleavage of 2-acylated 1,3-dithianes: Synthesis, 17 (1969), and of NBS in the 1-bromination of terminal alkynes: Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 23, 727 (1984).
In combination with Br2 or I2 in refluxing methanol, brings about the rearrangement of acetophenones to methyl arylacetates, a reaction previously induced by thallium(III) nitrate: J. Chem. Soc., Perkin 1, 235 (1982):
The Hunsdiecker reaction of Ag salts of carboxylic acids with Br2 provides alkyl bromides with one less carbon atom which is lost as CO2; see, e.g.: Org. Synth. Coll., 3, 578 (1955). Reviews: Chem. Rev., 56, 219 (1956); Org. React., 9, 332 (1957). Compare also Mercury(II) oxide, A16157.
For the alkylation of substrates by radicals derived from decarboxylation of acids, see Trimethylacetic acid, A10776.
