# Electrolysis of AgNo3 [closed]

I have a solution of $\ce{AgNO_3}$ (is diluted with water). I electrolyse it. What products from at anode and cathode.

Since silver is below hydrogen in the spectrochemical series,it tends to get reduced over hydrogen, similarly, since $\ce{NO3-}$ is above $\ce{OH-}$ , it tends not to get oxidised, therefore giving oxygen.
$\ce{Ag+ + e- -> Ag}$ (at cathode)
$\ce{ 4OH- -> O2 + 2H2O + 4e-}$ (at anode)
• This is somewhat similar to what happens when you have both $\ce{OH-}$ and $\ce{NO3-}$ in the medium. With $\ce{Ag}$ at the other side @KierenAlbuquerque Mar 30, 2017 at 7:44
