silver oxide

[′sil·vər ′äk‚sīd]
(inorganic chemistry)
Ag2O An odorless, dark-brown powder with a metallic taste; soluble in nitric acid and ammonium hydroxide, insoluble in alcohol; decomposes above 300°C; used in medicine and in glass polishing and coloring, as a catalyst, and to purify drinking water.

The method is comprised of heating the coating to a first temperature between approximately 260[degrees] C and about 540[degrees] C in a chamber during a heating step; adding ozone to the chamber; maintaining the coating at a second temperature between 260[degrees] C and 540[degrees] C in an environment containing oxygen and ozone for less than 24 hours during a contaminant removal step; and reducing the temperature of the coating to a third temperature lower than the second temperature and maintaining the coating at the third temperature for between about 15 minutes and about 4 hours during a silver oxide restoration step.
