About

Oxalate IonSilver Oxalate can introduce carbon dioxide (CO2) into petrologic experiments under controlled temperature and pressure releasing quantifiable metallic silver and CO2 gas. Silver oxalate is also in high demand as a precursor for the production of silver nanparticles which are incorporated in coatings, nano fiber, first aid bandages, plastics, soaps, skin care products and textiles. Silver Oxalate is highly insoluble in water and converts to the oxide when heated (calcined). Silver Oxalate is generally immediately available in most volumes. High purity, submicron and nanopowder forms may be considered. American Elements produces to many standard grades when applicable, including Mil Spec (military grade); ACS, Reagent and Technical Grade; Food, Agricultural and Pharmaceutical Grade; Optical Grade, USP and EP/BP (European Pharmacopoeia/British Pharmacopoeia) and follows applicable ASTM testing standards. Typical and custom packaging is available. Additional technical, research and safety (MSDS) information is available as is a Reference Calculator for converting relevant units of measurement.

Synonyms

Disilver(1+) oxalate; ethanedioic acid, silver(1+) salt (1:2); Ethanedioic acid, disilver(1+) salt; Oxalic acid disilver salt; Oxalic acid, disilver(1+) salt

Related Products & Element Information

See more Silver products. Silver (atomic symbol: Ag, atomic number: 47) is a Block D, Group 11, Period 5 element with an atomic weight of 107.8682. Silver Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of Silver's shells is 2, 8, 18, 18, 1 and its electron configuration is [Kr]4d10 5s1. The silver atom has a radius of 144 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 203 pm. Silver was first discovered by Early Man prior to 5000 BC. In its elemental form, silver has a brilliant white metallic luster. Elemental SilverIt is a little harder than gold and is very ductile and malleable, being exceeded only by gold and perhaps palladium. Pure silver has the highest electrical and thermal conductivity of all metals and possesses the lowest contact resistance. It is stable in pure air and water, but tarnishes when exposed to ozone, hydrogen sulfide, or air containing sulfur. It is found in copper, copper-nickel, lead, and lead-zinc ores, among others. Silver was named after the Anglo-Saxon word "seolfor" or "siolfur," meaning 'silver'.
