Silver oxalate (Ag

)
is commonly employed in experimental petrology to add carbon dioxide (CO

) to experiments as it will break down to silver (Ag) and carbon dioxide under geologic conditions.[1] It is also a precursor to the production of silver nanoparticles, it is explosive upon heating around 140 degrees Celsius, shock or friction. [2]

Production[edit]

Silver oxalate is produced by the reaction between silver nitrate and oxalic acid.
