Mix AgNO3 with NaOH and ammonia ( The NaOH is supposed to create a basic environment but Idk what ammonia is for ) and then shake ? You could also warm the mixture I think, but I'm not sure
2 AgNO3 + 2 NaOH → Ag2O (s) + 2 NaNO3 + H2O
In the next step, sufficient aqueous ammonia is added to dissolve the brown silver(I) oxide. The resulting solution contains the [Ag(NH3)2]+ complexes in the mixture, which is the main component of Tollens' reagent. Sodium hydroxide is reformed:
Ag2O (s) + 4 NH3 + 2 NaNO3 + H2O → 2 [Ag(NH3)2]NO3 + 2 NaOH
Alternatively, aqueous ammonia can be added directly to silver nitrate solution. At first, ammonia will induce formation of solid silver oxide, but with additional ammonia, this solid precipitate dissolves to give a clear solution of diamminesilver(I) complex ( [Ag(NH3)2]+). Filtering the reagent before use helps to prevent false-positive results.
