Characteristics: Soft, ductile, lustrous white solid. Highest electrical and thermal conductivity of all metals. Resists oxidation, but tarnishes in air through reaction with atmospheric sulfur compounds. Absorbs oxygen strongly at melting point. Soluble in nitric acid, and alkali cyanide solutions, insoluble in water and alkalies. Noncombustible, except as powder.
Hazards: Tolerance (metal) 0.1 mg/m3 of air; (soluble compounds, (as Ag), 0.1 mg/m3 of air).
