One of my first solubility lessons regarded the great ability of the acetate ion to form a water-soluble salt with any other cation. One of my most recent lessons regarded the great ability of the silver(I) ion to override the previous rule. Why is silver the only ion that makes a not-as-soluble acetate? Would it happen also with methanoate or propanoate? I searched for those two and couldn't find them. Furthermore, would a solution of silver acetate eventually form silver hydroxide because of the basic properties of the acetate ion?
