Subject: Silver nitrate mixed with silica
An article by Dick Sullivan gives caution regarding mixture of silver
nitrate with finely particulated metals like aluminum or zinc.  I have read
MSDS and other safety information regarding this compound but have found
nothing regarding mixture with silica.  I am trying to make a 14% silver
nitrate silica.  The plan was to dissolve the silver nitrate in water add
the silica and mix well.  Then heat it in a microwave for 10 minutes to
speed drying.  Does anyone have any information to support this procedure?
