About Silver Nitrate -It was once called lunarcaustic because silver was luna by the ancient alchemists. -Albertus Magnus found that you could separate gold and silver with nitric acid by disolving the silver. The most typical reaction is when
a rod of copper is suspended into
silver nitrate and is left there for
a few hours. The silver nitrate
reacts with the copper to form
hairlike crystals of silver metal
and a blue solution of copper
nitrate. Carl Crede developed the
practice of applying a 2
percent solution of silver
nitrate to the eyes of newborn
babies to prevent gonorrheal
ophthalmia, a bacterial
infection of the eyes that may
result in blindness in a child.
