Silver Nitrate is a generally used on porous materials after ninhydrin processing. It reacts to the chlorides (salt) that are present in latent prints.
Silver Nitrate is applied by spraying the item or by submerging it into the liquid. After the item has dried, the Silver Nitrate will form a dark brown image after exposure to sunlight or forensic light source. The print should now be photographed and kept as evidence.
