Synthesis of lead

Preparation of elemental lead

Lead is prepared by reduction of lead oxide with charcoal.

Preparation of lead

Preparation of lead

Twenty-five grams of lead oxide are mixed well with 1.5 g of very fine charcoal and heated over a Meker burner in a large covered crucible for about one-half hour. The molten Pb is poured into a clean iron dish and allowed to cool. Yield about 20 g.
