Silver Nitrate (CAS. No. 7761-88-8) is a chemical compound that lacks carbon–hydrogen bonds and has a chemical formula of AgNO3. This inorganic compound is a versatile precursor to many other silver compounds, such as those used in photography. It is far less sensitive to light than the halides. In solid silver nitrate, the silver ions are three-coordinated in a trigonal planar arrangement. Silver nitrate is used in many ways in organic synthesis, such as for deprotection and oxidations.
