ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
INCOMPATIBLE WITH: CHLORIDES, CARBONATES, THIOCYANATES, FERROUS SALTS,
CHLOROSULFONIC ACID, ARSENIC POWDER, CHLORINE TRIFLUORIDE OR
PHOSPHONIUM IODIDE. SOLUTIONS OF SILVER NITRATE WITH AMMONIA, AMMONIA/
SODIUM CARBONATE, OR AMMONIA/SODIUM HYDROXIDE HAVE HAD SEVERAL
INSTANCES OF EXPLOSIONS REPORTED. REACTION WITH ACETALDEHYDE,
ACETYLENE OR OTHER TERMINAL ALKYNES MAY PRODUCE EXPLOSIVE COMPOUNDS.
A DRY MIXTURE OF POWDERED MAGNESIUM AND SILVER NITRATE HAS BEEN
REPORTED TO IGNITE EXPLOSIVELY ON CONTACT WITH A DROP OF WATER. A
MIXTURE WITH CHARCOAL IGNITES WHEN STRUCK, WHILE MIXTURES WITH
PHOSPHOROUS OR SULFUR EXPLODE WHEN STRUCK. PASSAGE OF PHOSPHINE
GAS INTO A SOLUTION OF SILVER NITRATE RESULTED IN AN EXPLOSION.
SECTION 8. - - - - - - EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION- - - - - -
WEAR APPROPRIATE NIOSH/MSHA-APPROVED RESPIRATOR, CHEMICAL-RESISTANT
GLOVES, SAFETY GOGGLES, OTHER PROTECTIVE CLOTHING.
USE ONLY IN A CHEMICAL FUME HOOD.

SECTION 11. - - - - - - - - - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION - - - - - - - -
ACUTE EFFECTS
HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED.
MAY BE HARMFUL IF INHALED.
MAY BE HARMFUL IF ABSORBED THROUGH THE SKIN.
MATERIAL IS EXTREMELY DESTRUCTIVE TO TISSUE OF THE MUCOUS MEMBRANES
AND UPPER RESPIRATORY TRACT, EYES AND SKIN.
INHALATION MAY RESULT IN SPASM, INFLAMMATION AND EDEMA OF THE
LARYNX AND BRONCHI, CHEMICAL PNEUMONITIS AND PULMONARY EDEMA.
SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE MAY INCLUDE BURNING SENSATION, COUGHING,
WHEEZING, LARYNGITIS, SHORTNESS OF BREATH, HEADACHE, NAUSEA AND
VOMITING.
MAY CAUSE ARGYRIA (A SLATE-GRAY OR BLUISH DISCOLORATION OF THE SKIN
AND DEEP TISSUES DUE TO THE DEPOSIT OF INSOLUBLE ALBUMINATE OF
SILVER).
ABSORPTION INTO THE BODY LEADS TO THE FORMATION OF METHEMOGLOBIN
WHICH IN SUFFICIENT CONCENTRATION CAUSES CYANOSIS. ONSET MAY BE
DELAYED 2 TO 4 HOURS OR LONGER.
INGESTION CAN CAUSE SEVERE GASTROENTERITIS THAT MAY BE FATAL.
CHRONIC EFFECTS
LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS HAVE SHOWN MUTAGENIC EFFECTS.
TARGET ORGAN(S):
EYES
NERVES
BLOOD
LUNGS
TO THE BEST OF OUR KNOWLEDGE, THE CHEMICAL, PHYSICAL, AND
TOXICOLOGICAL PROPERTIES HAVE NOT BEEN THOROUGHLY INVESTIGATED.
