What is Silver Fluoride?

Silver Fluoride is an odorless yellow to gray solid. It is one of the three principal silver fluorides, along with silver subfluoride and silver(II) fluoride. In chemistry, it has been used as a fluorination and desilylation reagent, and in dentistry, it has been used in aqueous solution as a topical caries therapy.

Macsen Laboratories is the leading manufacturer and supplier of Silver Fluoride with ISO certification.

  • In the field of organofluorine chemistry, silver fluoride is utilized for the addition of fluoride to several bonds simultaneously, example to fluorinate alkyl halides.
  • Silver Fluoride has also been found to be an effective anti-caries agent, however, fluoride toxicity has been a significant clinical concern in paediatric applications, and hence is now replaced by Silver diamine fluoride (Ag(NH3)2F).
  • It is also possible to employ it as a silver precursor salt in order to manufacture silver nanoparticles.
