  • n. chemical formula for lead monoxide


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • In particular, it seemed the perfect alternative to lead monoxide (PbO, litharge), the white pigment in those "lead-based" paints you hear about.

    Analog Science Fiction and Fact

  • For lead oxide, PbO, the choices are red lead, white lead or litharge.

    16. Glaze formula calculations

  • - The sum of K2O and Na2O should not exceed 0.5 molecular parts on the flux side, the rest being other fluxes like PbO, CaO, ZnO, BaO.

    16. Glaze formula calculations

  • The most common flux for temperatures below 1100°C is lead oxide (PbO), but since it is poisonous it is no longer used in modern crockery glazes.

    5. Simple glaze theory

  • -- Lead is precipitated either as PbO_ {2} at the anode from a nitric acid solution or as metal at the cathode from an ammonium oxalate solution.

    Scientific American Supplement, No. 810, July 11, 1891

  • In further confirmation of the conclusion from these results, viz. that the nitrocelluloses with no tendency to combine with PbO are associated with acid products or by-products of the ester reaction combining with the oxide, the lead reagent was allowed to react in the presence of 90 p.ct. acetone.

  • Various estimations of the PbO fixed in this way have given numbers varying from 2 to 2.5 p. ct.

    Researches on Cellulose 1895-1900

  • PbO + 2HNO_ {3} = Pb (NO_ {3}) _ {2} + H_ {2} O. 2.

    An Elementary Study of Chemistry

  • Ag_ {2} S, PbO, Cu (OH) _ {2} (for solubilities, see last paragraph of chapter).

    An Elementary Study of Chemistry

  • Boiled oil is linseed oil boiled with litharge (PbO) and white vitriol, which removes much of the fatty ingredient and gives it drying quality.
