silver chloride to silver metal MESS. need help.

Post by kevinmanuel » Tue Apr 24, 2018 14:59


I would like to get help fixing a mess i did trying to refine silver using silver cholride and NaOh. I have filtered siver cholride from nitric using salt. Washed well with distiled water. Next i have added NaOh and stirred until all powder was dark color. Next add caro (syrop) to try and get siver metal. Got the reaction and then some gray color powder. Washed well and dryed. Until now all was ok. When i have tryed melting it i have noticed that the powder dont melt but become black and red cherry color some silver did melt. Got lot of smoke. .
I think i have used more the i needed NaOh and caro. How do i recover the silver back to a way i can rerefind it using the simple nitric copper way that had worked well for me in the past. I did tryed to put some of the powder back in nitric. It disolved partly and now there is gery color powder that wont dissolve any more.

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
