In industry, silver acetate has been used in the preparation of highly reflective, conductive silvered polymer films.
Silver Acetate is also could be used to catalyze cycloaddition reactions of isocyanatoacetates.
In the health field, silver acetate-containing products have been used in such products as gum, spray, and lozenges to deter smokers from smoking.
