A litharge is leaden 2824900010
Litharge or lead oxide (PbO) is an inorganic binary lead compound with oxygen.
Red and yellow - orange crystals. Poorly soluble in ethanol and water.
Lead oxide is thermally stable at both room and low temperatures. Has anti-corrosion properties. Has high toxicity. Lead litharge is diamagnetic and also has semiconductor properties. The type of conductivity of the litharge depends on its composition. May occur as minerals with various impurities.
The density of lead oxide is α-PbO - 9.13 g / cm³, β-PbO - 9.45 g / cm³.
Method of obtaining
Melting under oxidizing conditions that require metallic lead catalysts.
- In the paint and varnish industry, a component of putty, anticorrosive pigment, and mixtures for hermentization is made from lead lattice.
- For e-coals and batteries.
- And in the chemical industry, the synthesis of cellulose is used to obtain lead salts.
- In radio engineering.
