Preparation of silver nitrite

Preparation of silver nitrite

Warm concentrated solutions containing 48 grams of silver nitrate and 30 grams potassium nitrite (or an equimolar amount of sodium nitrite) are mixed, and the mixture is allowed to cool. The silver nitrite which separates on cooling is filtered off and washed with water. Silver nitrite may be purified by recrystallization from water at 70° C, and is dried in a vacuum desiccator or in an air at about 40° C. The yield of silver nitrite is about 90%, which is stored in a tightly-stoppered amber bottle.
