Abstract : A lengthy review is given of the case for the existence of compounds containing tripositive silver. Alternate explanations are also given, the most common one being the existence of peroxides. The argument for the presence of tripositive silver in AgO rests heavily on the diamagnetism of AgO. Several samples of AgO were prepared and most of them were diamagnetic. Metallic silver is also diamagnetic. This raises doubts about the validity of magnetic susceptibility as evidence for the existence of tripositive silver in AgO. (Author)
