Encyclopedia > Lead(IV) oxide

Lead dioxide, PbO2, also plumbic oxide, is an oxide of lead, with lead in oxidation state +4. An oxide is a chemical compound of oxygen with other chemical elements. ... General Name, Symbol, Number lead, Pb, 82 Chemical series poor metals Group, Period, Block 14, 6, p Appearance bluish white Atomic mass 207. ... The oxidation state or oxidation number is defined as the sum of negative and positive charges in an atom, which indirectly indicates the number of electrons it has accepted or donated. ...

When hydrated, it may be called plumbic acid. Plumbic acid refers to hydrated lead dioxide. ...

Lead dioxide can dissolve in strong base to form plumbate ion, Pb(OH)62-. This can then form plumbate compounds. The plumbate ion is PbO32- or Pb(OH)62-. A plumbate (compound) is a compound containing this ion. ...

In acid conditions, it is typically reduced to lead(II) ion, Pb2+; lead(IV) ion, Pb4+, is not found in aqueous solution. Drinking water This article focuses on water as we experience it every day. ...
