Lead Acetate, also known as Lead(II) Acetate and Lead Diacetate, has the chemical formula C4H6O4Pb or Pb(CH3COO)2. It appears as colorless crystals or white crystalline powder with a slight acetic odor and is Water-soluble at ambient conditions. When heated to decomposition, it emits toxic fumes of Lead Oxides. It can be synthesized by dissolving Lead Monoxide or Lead Carbonate in strong Acetic Acid. An ACS Grade reagent is a chemical that meets the purity requirements of the American Chemical Society (ACS). It is generally equivalent to the Analytical Reagent Grade. For dependable, consistent, and repeatable findings, ACS Grade reagents can be utilized in high-quality research labs. In the United States of America (USA), Lab Alley sells its high-quality Lead Acetate, ACS/Analytical Reagent Grade online at laballey.com.

It is made by treating lead(II) oxide with acetic acid. Like other lead compounds, it is toxic.

Lead acetate is a white crystalline compound of lead with a sweetish taste. Known as “sugar of lead”, it is water-soluble and one of the most bioavailable forms of lead. Similar to other lead compounds, it is very poisonous and soluble in water.

Lead Acetate Solubility

Lead acetate is soluble in water and glycerin. With water it forms the trihydrate, Pb(CH3COO) 3H2O, a colourless or white efflorescent monoclinic crystalline substance.
