Silver Nitrate uses are varied. As Silver Nitrate is readily soluble, a solution of Silver Nitrate is often used to quantify Chloride in a product. This process is carried out by mixing Silver Nitrate solution with Chloride solution and using Volhard's titration method to measure the exact amount of Chloride. This process works by observing the colour change of the mixed solution and measuring the precipitate in it.
Another very common use of Silver Nitrate is for coating glass. If Silver Nitrate is applied to the back of a sheet of glass, this creates a mirror effect. Silver Nitrate is also widely used in photography processes due to its extreme light-sensitivity. In the photographic industry, Silver Nitrate is often sold as Silver Nitrate Photographic Grade. This is a high quality analytical grade of Silver Nitrate, which tends not to be generally available in lower 'technical' grades.
Silve Nitrate has some applications in the food and fishing industries. A dilute solution of Silver Nitrate can be used to clean crabs and oysters after harvesting from the sea. Silver Nitrate is also used by marine companies for checking seawater contamination in dock areas and in ships. This will help to determine if water found within a ship has come from inside the ship or from outside the ship and as such, will help to detect leaks in the ship's hull.
Silver Nitrate can be used effectively to disinfect large scale water systems such as those present in schools, hospitals and hotels. On space missions, Silver Nitrate has been used to recycle water on the spacecraft.
Due to its antiseptic properties, Silver Nitrate has a number of uses in medicine, It can be used for wound dressings as its antiseptic properties help to sterilise the wound. However, it is an expensive mineral salt and the price of Silver Nitrate is closely linked to the price of Silver bullion. This means that the price of Silver Nitrate can change daily.
Silver Nitrate is still used as a coating for catheters as it helps to prevent the spread of infection. In olden days, before the discovery of antibiotics, a very dilute solution of Silve Nitrate drops were put into the eyes of newborn babies whose mothers were suffering from gonorrhoae. In these times, gonorrhoae was easily passed from infected mother to newborn child and could cause blindness in the infant. However, incorrect strengths and doses of Silver Nitrate solution could result in blindness being caused to the infants.
Silver Nitrate was discovered in the Thirteenth Century by a Dominican Friar named Albertus Magns who is also credited with the discovery of Arsenic and who experimented with photo-sensitive chemicals such as Silver Nitrate. Legend has it that Albertus Magnus discovered the Philosopher's Stone, which was the Holy Grail of early alchemists, although this legend has not been substantiated.
