SILVER CHLORATE Chemical Properties,Usage,Production
Silver Chlorate is a yellow to yellowish-gray powder. Con-
tains 78% silver. Light-sensitive. Soluble in ammonium hydroxide,
nitric acid; insoluble in alcohol and water.
Silver Chlorate is used in organic synthesis as an effective oxidizing agent for certain organic Compounds.
Oxidizing agent, may react violently when
shocked or heated, store away from combustible
materials. Toxic by ingestion.
Recrystallise the chlorate three times from water (10mL/g at 15o; 2mL/g at 80o). Store it in the dark. [Nicholson & Holley Inorg Synth II 4 1946, Glemser & Sauer in Handbook of Preparative Inorganic Chemistry (Ed. Brauer) Academic Press Vol I p 1037 1963.]
