    im not sure what u r doing. in aldehyde, Tollens reagent will give a silver mirror on gentle heating if aldehyde.

    ammonical silver nitrate is also the test for NaBr/NaCl/NaI as it forms diff precipitates

    i mean to do the silver mirror test, do I just add the ammonical silver nitrate to the carbonyl, no need to warm it?
