Dear Isogeochemists,

I would like to know if some lab or someone that regularly uses the silver oxide method of Silva et al. (2000), in order to extract the NO3 dissolved in groundwater samples for d15N-NO3 and d18O-NO3 analyisis, applies any treatment to the residual AgCl so that the Ag can be reused or recycled.

Any suggestion will be appreciated or pointing towards a useful reference would be enough.

Thanks. Best regards.
