Silver telluride, Ag2Te

Silver and tellurium unite directly to form Silver telluride, Ag2Te. It can also be produced by the reduction of tellurites; by the interaction of tellurium and silver salts; and by the action of a solution of sodium telluride, Na2Te, on silver acetate dissolved in dilute acetic acid. When prepared by the method last mentioned, it forms a grey, brittle, crystalline substance, melting at 959° C. It is also formed by heating silver and tellurium, another substance, possibly AgTe, being produced simultaneously.
