Silver Carbonate is a carbonate salt of Silver. It is usually yellow in color but typical samples are greyish due to the presence of elemental silver. It is a salt of low solubility. The principal use of silver carbonate is for the production of silver powder for use in microelectronics.
It is decomposed by acids with the evolution of carbon dioxide. No rapid reaction with air or water is observed.
