Hazard InformationBack Directory
[Potential Exposure]

Mercuric nitrate is used in making other chemicals; in felt manufacture and in making mercury fulminate
[First aid]

Move victim to fresh air. Call 911 or emergency medical service. Give artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim ingested or inhaled the substance; give artificia respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult. Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes. In case of contact with substance, immediately flush skin or eyes with running water for at least 20 minutes. For minor skin contact, avoid spreading material on unaffected skin. Keep victim warm and quiet. Effects of exposure (inhalation, ingestion, or skin contact) to substance may be delayed. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take precautions to protect themselves. Medical observation is recommended for 24 to 48 hours after breathing overexposure, as pulmonary edema may be delayed. As first aid for pulmonary edema, a doctor or authorized paramedic may consider administering a drug or other inhalation therapy. Antidotes and Special Procedures for authorized medical personnel: The drug NAP has been used to treat mercury poisoning, with mixed success.

UN1625 Mercuric nitrate, Hazard Class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1-Poisonous materials.
[Incompatibilities]

A strong oxidizer. Reacts violently with combustibles, petroleum hydrocarbons; reducing agents; aldehydes, ammonia, ketones, phosphorus. Reacts with acetylene, alcohol, phosphine, and sulfur to form shocksensitive compounds. Aqueous solution attacks most metals. Vigorous and dangerous reaction with petroleum hydrocarbons. Incompatible with organic materials; acetylene, ethanol, phosphine, sulfur, hypophosphoric acid. Inorganic mercury compounds are incompatible with acetylene, ammonia, chlorine dioxide; azides, calcium (amalgam formation), sodium carbide; lithium, rubidium, copper. Decomposes in heat or on exposure to light, producing toxic fumes (mercury, nitrogen oxides)
Questions And AnswerBack Directory
[Chemical Properties]

The monohydrate is a white crystalline or powdery substance; density 4.3g/cm3; decomposes on heating; soluble in water and nitric acid; insoluble in alcohol.
It is stable and hygroscopic. Mercuric nitrate is incompatible with mercuric nitrate in contact with organic materials, powdered metals, petroleum hydrocarbons, hypophosphoric acid, unsaturates, and aromatics, which react violently.
[Uses]

Mercury(II) nitrate is used in the preparation of other mercury compounds; in organic synthesis; and as an analytical standard for mercury.
[Preparation]

Mercury(II) nitrate is prepared by dissolving mercury in excess hot concentrated nitric acid. Upon evaporation of the solution, large colorless deliquescent crystals of monohydrate, Hg(NO3)2•H2O, form.
It also is obtained by boiling a solution of mercury(I) nitrate or by the action of light on mercury(I) nitrate:
Hg2(NO3)2 → Hg + 2HgNO3
[Reactions]

Gentle heating of mercury(II) nitrate gives mercury(II) oxide evolving nitrogen and oxygen:
Hg(NO3)2 → HgO + 2NO2 + ½ O2
However, on strong heating, mercury nitrate decomposes to mercury metal:
Hg(NO3)2 → Hg + 2NO2 + O2
When excess alkali hydroxide is added to a solution of mercury(II) nitrate, a yellow precipitate of HgO is obtained.
Addition of potassium thiocyanate solution forms a white precipitate of mercury(II) thiocyanate:
Hg2+ + 2SCN¯ → Hg(SCN)2
Addition of a small amount of alkali iodide to mercury(II) nitrate solution precipitates mercury(II) iodide:
Hg2+ + 2I¯ → HgI2
Similarly, mercury(II) cyanide precipitates upon the addition of potassium cyanide to mercury(II) nitrate solution:
Hg2+ + 2CN¯ → Hg(CN)2
[Toxicity]

Mercury(II) nitrate is highly toxic by ingestion and possibly other routes of exposure. The LD50 oral for the dihydrate in mouse is 25 mg/kg.
