No value for the atmosphereic pressure under which the boiling point was determined. It is assumed that the results referred to normal atmospheric pressure of 1013.25 hPa.

Conclusions:
According to the reference silver has a boiling point of 2212°C.

Description of key information

Two reliable sources (handbooks/factual databases) report the boiling point of silver metal as 2187°C and 2212°C, respectively (Römpp Online, Version 3.1: Georg Thieme Verlag, Dokumentkennung RD-20-01896 and GESTIS database on hazardous substances: www.dguv.de/bgia/stoffdatenbank). Whereas of limited relevance for the assessment, the former value is selected as the key value for chemical safety assessment.
