What is Basic Lead Carbonate?

Basic lead carbonate is an important inorganic compound with the chemical formula Pb3(OH)2(CO3)2 or abbreviated as 2PbCO3·Pb(OH)2. This compound appears in the form of a white powder with high density, a hexagonal crystal structure, and is insoluble in water and ethanol, but can be partially soluble under certain acidic or alkaline conditions.

Due to its excellent hiding power, weather resistance and anti-rust properties, basic lead carbonate has been widely used as a white pigment in history, especially in oil paints, paints, ceramic glazes, cosmetics and certain plastic products such as pearlescent In plastics and pearlescent paints.

Basic Lead Carbonate Uses

Pigment industry:
Painting and paint: Basic lead carbonate is a traditional white pigment, known as “lead white” or “lead white powder”. Because of its good covering power, durability and pure white color, it was once widely used in oil paints and interior and exterior decorative coatings.

Plastic industry:
Pearlescent pigment: Basic lead carbonate can be used as a pearlescent agent to produce pearlescent plastics and pearlescent paint, giving the product a unique pearlescent effect.

Anti-corrosion coating:
Anti-rust paint: Basic lead carbonate was once added to anti-rust paint as an anti-rust agent because it can inhibit oxidative corrosion on metal surfaces.

Other areas:
In the ceramic industry, basic lead carbonate has been used as an additive to porcelain glazes;
In chemical synthesis, it may serve as an intermediate in the production of certain specific chemicals;
It was also used in early cosmetics and skin care products.

Features of Basic Lead Carbonate

Chemical Properties:
Chemical formula: 2PbCO₃·Pb(OH)₂, indicating that it is a complex salt composed of two lead carbonate molecules and one lead hydroxide molecule.
Appearance: Appears as white powdery solid.
Solubility: Insoluble in water and alcohol solvents, only slightly soluble in carbon dioxide aqueous solutions, but soluble in acetic acid, nitric acid and strong alkali solutions.

Physical properties:
Color: It has excellent white covering power, so it is often used as a white pigment.
Stability: Relatively stable under normal conditions, but it will decompose at high temperatures to produce lead oxide, carbon dioxide, and water vapor.

Although restricted, basic lead carbonate has been widely used in pigment manufacturing in the past, especially in the paint and coatings industry, providing excellent white coloring properties and some anti-corrosion properties.
