Lead Carbonate Properties

Lead Carbonate

Molecule Structure Image



Lead carbonate is prepared industrially from lead(II) acetate and carbon dioxide. It has a wide range of applications. It catalyzes the polymerization of formaldehyde to high molecular weight crystalline poly(oxymethylene) products. It is used as a component of high-pressure lubricating greases, as a catalyst in the curing of moldable thermosetting silicone resins, as a coating on vinyl chloride polymers to improve their dielectric properties, as a component of corrosion-resistant, dispersion- strengthened grids in lead-acid storage batteries and also as a photoconductor for electrophotography.
