In the mononuclear title compound, [Ag(NO3)(C6H6N2O)2], the AgI atom is located on a twofold rotation axis and the nitrate-chelated AgI atom is further coordinated by two aromatic N atoms of hydroxylamine ligands in a distorted tetrahedral geometry. In the crystal, the nitrate ion has 2 symmetry with the N atom and one O atom located on the twofold rotation axis, and is linked to hydroxy groups of the hydroxylamine ligands by O-H...O hydrogen bonds, generating a chain running along the b axis.
