Information @ a Glance

  • Lead nitrate is a white crystalline solid and is soluble in water.

  • An inorganic compound with the chemical formula Pb(NO3)2 and it commonly occurs as a colourless crystal or white powder & unlike most other lead(II) salts.

  • Synonyms are lead dinitrate, lead (II) nitrate, Nitric acid Lead(II) salt, Lead(2+) Salt, Plumbous Nitrate.

  • It is noncombustible but it will accelerate the burning of combustible materials. If large quantities of the material are involved in the fire an may result in explosion .

  • A highly water soluble crystalline Lead source for uses compatible with nitrates and lower (acidic) pH.

  • Lead(II) nitrate does not occur naturally. The compound can be obtained by dissolving metallic lead in aqueous nitric acid.

  • Lead(II) nitrate readily dissolves in water to give a clear, colourless solution.

  • As an ionic substance, the dissolution of lead(II) nitrate involves dissociation into its constituent ions.

  • Lead(II) nitrate forms a slightly acidic solution, with a pH of 3.0 to 4.0 for a 20% aqueous solution.

  • Current applications of lead(II) nitrate include use as a heat stabiliser in nylon and polyesters, as a coating for photo-thermographic paper, and in rodenticides.

  • Lead Nitrate is used for match manufacturing and explosives and as an oxidizer in the dye industry.

  • Addition of lead nitrate is a function of mineralogical composition of the ore.

  • In extraction of gold from a gold ore by the cyanidation process in which a leaching step including the addition of a lead compound which is lead nitrate.

  • Commonly added to activate the zinc dust used in the gold recovery process in the gold mines.

  • Once the lead nitrate is added to the ore slurry, it quickly becomes dispersed and the lead is diluted down to very low concentrations.

  • Lead nitrate made on a small scale as an intermediate in the manufacture of pigments for paints and dyes and later in pyrotechnics.
