Lead Acetate

CAS RN: 301-04-2

Reactivities / Incompatibilities

Reacts violently with strong oxidizers, bromates, strong acids, chemically active metals, phosphates, carbonates, phenols. Contact with strong acids forms acetic acid. Incompatible with strong bases, ammonia, amines, cresols, isocyanates, alkylene oxides, epichlorohydrin, sulfites, resorcinol, salicylic acid ...
Incompatible with KBrO3, acids, soluble sulfates, citrates, tartrates, chlorides, carbonates, alkalies, tannin phosphates, resorcinol, salicylic acid, phenol, chloral hydrate, sulfites, vegetable infusions, tinctures.
... /Lead acetate-lead bromate/ formulated as the double salt, (fuel + oxidant), rather than the mixed salt) may be formed during the preparation of lead bromate from lead acetate and potassium bromate in acetic acid, and is explosive and very sensitive to friction.
During an attempt to make lead bromate /from potassium bromate and lead acetate/, an explosion occurred that caused two deaths.
