Mercurous Nitrate

Mercury nitrate, is a type of chemical compound with a formula of Hg2(NO3)2. It is most commonly going to be used in preparing some other types of mercury compounds and it is toxic just like every other type of mercury compound you are going to find. This compound is formed when mercury is combined with a dilute nitric acid. The result is a mercurous nitrate that works as a reducing agent that oxidizes upon contact with the air.
