Description

General description

Reaction of silver carbonate with acetic acid at 45-60°C has been reported to afford silver acetate. It participates in the conversion of carboxylic acid chlorides to amides, via aminolysis.

Application

Silver acetate may be used in the synthesis of α-cis glycol and β-cis glycol. It may be used as a catalyst in the synthesis of Δ1- or Δ2-pyrrolines.

Used in a novel preparation of highly reflective, conductive silvered polymer films. Also effectively catalyzes cycloaddition reactions of isocyanoacetates with a variety of olefins.
