How to Make Lead Oxide ?

Lead forms several oxides. Lead The most common being lead oxide (PbO), Red Lead (Pb3O4) and lead dioxide (PbO2)

In an ancient industrial process, lead was indeed heated at 600°C in air [lead melts at 327.5 °C] to produce a grey powder containing metallic lead.
PURE lead (II) oxide can be prepared in one of 2 ways:

By heating lead(II) nitrate:
2Pb(NO3)2 → 2PbO + 4NO2 + O2

or

By heating lead (II) carbonate:
PbCO3 → PbO + CO2


The latter process is preferred since the production of toxic nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is avoided.
