Description

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. Lab grade chemicals possess reasonable purity but do not comply with any official standard for quality or purity like the ACS Grade, the USP Grade, or the FCC Grade. The Lab Grade is also known as Laboratory Reagent (LR) and Chemically Pure (CP). Lab Alley’s Lead Acetate, Lab Grade is recommended for educational institutes, research labs, and commercial applications.

Information About Lead Acetate From Wikipedia

Lead(II) acetate, also known as lead acetate, lead diacetate, plumbous acetate, sugar of lead, lead sugar, salt of Saturn, or Goulard's powder, is a white crystalline chemical compound with a sweet taste. 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.

Lead Acetate For Grey Hair

Lead acetate is common in hair dyes — particularly, in “progressive” hair dyes. Progressive hair dyes, more commonly used by men, work to cover gray hair gradually. Continued exposure to lead acetate is potentially a serious health concern, and it is time for the FDA to ban its use in hair products.
