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.
