Molecular Formula: Pb(NO3)2
Molecular Weight: 331.20
Cas No.: 10099-74-8
UN No.: 1469
Hazardous Class: 5.1 Oxidizer
Character: white crystal powder, relative density 4.53(20), easily soluble in water, liquid ammonia, light dissolve in ethyl alcohol, not dissolve in concentrated nitrate acid, solubility 56.5g/100g water (20). Dry lead nitrate decompose at 205-223. Damp lead nitrate decompose at 100, first become Pb(NO3)2 . PbO, go on heating, then become PbO. It is strong oxidant, putting together with organics will lead it burning, noxious.
Application: Used as tanning material for leather-making; dyeing mordant, producing Chrome Yellow, chrome orange (lead(II) hydroxide chromate) and other lead compounds.
