Why do we store silver chloride

Question:

Why do we store silver chloride in a dark coloured bottle ?

Solution:

Silver chloride is a white solid. However, it is very senstive to sun light and decomposes in the presence of light to form silver (grey in colour) and chlorine.

In order to avoid action by sun light, it is kept in a coloured bottle.
