Detailed Product Description:

Lead(II) acetate is a white crystalline substance with a sweetish taste.

It is made by treating lead(II) oxide (PbO) with acetic acid. Like other

lead compounds, it is toxic. It is soluble in water and glycerin. With water it

forms the trihydrate, Pb(CH3COO)23H2O, a colorless or white efflorescent

monoclinic crystalline substance.


This is the trihydrate Reagent Grade Material with a minimum purity of 99.5%.


This 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 coloring 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.

Lead acetate, has been used in cosmetics throughout history. Though this practice

has ceased in Western countries, it is still used in men's hair coloring products

like Grecian Formula.

Lead acetate paper is used to detect the poisonous gas hydrogen sulfide. The gas

reacts with lead(II) acetate on the moistened test paper to form a grey precipitate

of lead(II) sulfide.
