Lead (II) nitrate is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula Pb ( NO 3) 2. It commonly occurs as a colourless crystal or white powder and, unlike most other lead (II) salts, is soluble in water.
What is the history of lead nitrate?
The production of lead (II) nitrate from either metallic lead or lead oxide in nitric acid, known as plumbum dulce since the Middle Ages, was small-scale, for direct use in the manufacture of other lead compounds. Lead II nitrate formula was first commercially produced in Europe and the United States in the nineteenth century.
What happens when lead nitrate is added to water?
Lead nitrate is prone to partial hydrolysis in water, giving neutral solutions a cloudy appearance. This can be rectified by the addition of a small amount of nitric acid to the solution. Given that lead nitrate is the most commonly encountered water-soluble lead salt, it is an important precursor to other insoluble lead compounds.
