Description of Lead acetate trihydrate

Lead(II) acetate (Pb(CH3COO)2), also known as lead acetate, lead diacetate, plumbous acetate, sugar of lead, lead sugar, salt of Saturn, and Goulard’s powder, is a white crystalline chemical compound with a sweetish taste. It is made by treating lead(II) oxide with acetic acid. Like other lead compounds, it is toxic. Lead acetate is soluble in water and glycerin. With water it forms the trihydrate, Pb(CH3COO)2·3H2O, a colourless or white efflorescent monoclinic crystalline substance.

The substance is used as a reagent to make other lead compounds and as a fixative for some dyes. In low concentrations, it is the principal active ingredient in progressive types of hair colouring dyes. Lead(II) acetate is also used as a mordant in textile printing and dyeing, as a drier in paints and varnishes, and in preparing other lead compounds. It was historically used as a sweetener and for cosmetics.

What is Lead acetate trihydrate?

Part I: Introduction

     With the progress of science and technology and the development of society, chemical products have invariably permeated our daily lives, in medicine, food, cosmetics, electronics, industry, and other areas, becoming an essential part of our lives. One such product is Lead acetate trihydrate which has developed particularly rapidly in recent years. Do you know about Lead acetate trihydrate?

The official answer: Lead acetate trihydrate is a colorless crystal, white granule, or powder, which will be deliquescent. It is easily soluble in water and has a sweet taste. Lead acetate trihydrate is used in the manufacture of various lead salts, pigments, dyes, lead plating, catalysts for the manufacture of polyester, waterproof paint, desiccant, insecticide, and medicine, etc.

What’s the application of Lead acetate trihydrate?

Used as a pigment, stabilizer, and catalyst, etc.

It can be used to make various kinds of lead salts, anti-fouling paint, water protection agent, pigment filler, paint desiccant, fiber dyeing agent, and solvent for the heavy metal cyanidation process. It is widely used in the production of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, dyestuffs, paints, and other industries. It is also a reagent for the determination of chromium trioxide and molybdenum trioxide in chemical analysis.

Used as analytical reagent, also used in biological dyeing, organic synthesis, and pharmaceutical industry

Lead oxide is obtained by reacting with acetic acid. Dissolve lead oxide in 80% hot acetic acid until bubble Chemicalbook and, filter, add a small amount of acetic acid to the filtrate and evaporate until the relative density is 1.40. Cool, shake filter, dry, then lead acetate is obtained. The purity of industrial lead acetate can generally reach 98% or more. After purification, it can be recrystallized by 1% acetic acid solution, or lead acetate trihydrate dissolved in water and passed into hydrogen sulfide, so that lead sulfide and other impurities precipitated together, filtered, and added into the filtrate with fluorescent gallium reagent (complexing agent of Co, Al, Cu, etc.), added with a small amount of activated carbon, and then treated with EDTA sodium salt, can obtain extremely pure reagent-grade products.

Peter has been my partner for many years, we met at the Shanghai CPHI Fair in 2014, for the first time I didn't have much interest in Peter's products because our company had a stable supplier. Although we didn't work together, Peter would often send me important news and interesting trend information about the industry, so we became good friends, even though I didn't place any orders with him during this time, even if it was a sample order. In September 2016, our original supplier was unable to provide us with the quality and delivery guarantees we needed, so I first thought of Peter and his company. Until now, we have maintained a very good personal friendship in addition to a steady business relationship.

In all my years of sourcing from China, I first time to found that working with Sincere Chemical was so good, they helped me with all the production and delivery as well as a lot of technical expertise, which saved me a lot of time. When I first approached Peter for a quotation for Optical Brightener, he made me a detailed quotation with not only prices but also foreign trade details, company profile, company strengths, R&D capabilities, production capacity, packaging methods, raw material control, environmental protection, and much more. This information was a very important reference for me in making purchasing decisions. Sincere Chemical is a trustworthy supplier and I believe our business will grow from strength to strength!

Hi, I'm Kim, I'm Peter's partner and although I don't like him very much (because he never gives me more money for my prices, hahaha) I'm still willing to write him customer feedback. As an international buyer, I have to deal with a lot of things every day and my inbox is often full of development letters. It's a lot of junk and meaningless pleasantries, which I don't like that much, but Peter's emails always give me a better understanding of the product and the industry. I am also very pleased with his work ethic, and I am very happy with his work every time I work with him, not only in providing quotations but also in facilitating all the details of my work so that I can concentrate more on other things, so he is the best supplier for me. Although his prices are not the lowest among all suppliers, his products give me the greatest peace of mind.
