Why are compounds of silver (AgCl, for example) so insoluble?
Then why silver (I) fluoride is so much water soluble than most other fluorides (excepting those of alcaline metals)?Yes, but silver nitrate is (close to) the only one. And if you check, just about anything nitrate is soluble. But silver isn't soluble where most other cations are. That is undeniable. Just look at silver chloride.
Sorry, but this is the only case on this forum so far where I am sure of my correctness. This and the concentration problem. A compound with silver, for the most part, is insoluble when the same anion with (almost) any other cation would be soluble.
