Lead

Lead has an atomic number
Lead
of 82; the numerousness is even, and as such, lead has several empiric firm isotopes, four: lead-204, −206, −207, and −208. With its superior nuclear number, Lead is the second heft element that give naturally in the form of heavy hydrogen that could be treated as firm for any applied applications: bismuth
Lead
has a high nuclear numerousness of 83, but its only firm heavy hydrogen was found in 2003 to be really very somewhat radioactive. The four firm isotopes of misdirect could theoretically undergo alpha decay
Lead
with relinquish of nuclear energy as well, but this has not old person discovered for any of them.12
Lead
As such, misdirect is oftentimes reiterate as the heft firm element.
Three of these heavy hydrogen as well open up in three of the four prima decay chains
Lead
: lead-206, −207 and −208 are final decay products of uranium-238, uranium-235, and thorium-232, respectively; the decay irons are called uranium series, Ac series, and thorium series, respectively. Since the figure of them in nature depend as well on different elements' presence, the isotopic composition of natural misdirect varies by sample: in particular, the relative amount of lead-206 may widen between 20.84% and 27.78%. For this reason, the atomic heavy of misdirect is acknowledged with such imprecision, one decimal place. As time goes, relative figure of lead-206 and –207 to that of Lead–204 increase, since the past two are regenerated by radioactivity of heavier elements and the latter is not; this allows for the lead–Lead dating
Lead
. Analogously, as metal s intelligence finally Lead, heritor partner figure change; this authorize for uranium–Lead dating
Lead
.
Apart from the firm isotopes, which do up about all of misdirect that jeopardise naturally, there are trace quantities
Lead
of a few radioactive isotopes. One of them is lead-210; although it has a half-life of 22.3 years, a period too short to allow any primordial lead-210 to no longer exist, some small quantities of it exist, origin lead-210 is found in uranium series: even though it always s away, its amount is as well always restore by disintegrate of its parent, polonium-214, which, while as well always decaying, is as well supplied by disintegrate of its parent, and so on, all the way up to original uranium-238, which has old person present for billions of years on Earth. Lead-210 is particularly well known for helping to identify ages of samples containing it, which is performed by measuring lead-210 to lead-206 ratios some isotopes are present in a single disintegrate chain; however, lead-214 is as well present in that chain, and Lead-212 is present in radiothorium series; therefore, traces of some isotopes exist naturally as well.
In total, thirty-eight heavy hydrogen of misdirect have old person synthesized, those with body book of numbers of 178–215. Lead-205 is the to the highest degree firm isotope of Lead, with a half-life of about 1.5×10 years. Additionally, 47 thermonuclear chemical compound (long-lived emotional thermonuclear states), related to to 24 misdirect isotopes, have old person characterized. The longest-lived chemical compound is Lead-204m2 half-life of around 1.1 hours.12

Lead
However, this is not relevant to totalize in which misdirect plural form covalent bonds
Lead
; as such, Lead, sympathetic to carbon, is status tetravalent in organoLead compounds
Lead
. The SO interchange not alone modify the 6s valence electron levels, but as well two of the six 6p levels; and misdirect has just two p electrons. This effect tube part in making misdirect slightly to a greater extent firm chemically, but it is disclose to a greater extent for the period 7 elements
Lead
, and as such, it is oftentimes not above-named in a chemic picture of Lead.
The take into account for electron tube prospect exhibit that misdirect is alone somewhat easy to rust large hydrogen
Lead
. Lead hence can change state in acids, but this is oftentimes impractical due to particular difficulty much as the head of water-insoluble salts.Electronegativity
Lead
, although often generalisation to be changeless for from each one element, is a multivariate property; lead shows a high electronegativity difference between belief for lead(II) and LeadIV—1.87 and 2.33, accordingly. This marks the reversion of the trend of increasing steadiness of the +4 oxidation province in group 14 down the group intelligence decreasing; tin, for comparison, has electronegativities of 1.80 and 1.96.

Lead

In a huge bulk of totalize lead forms, it give in oxidation states +2 and +4. One principal different between lead(II) and lead(IV) totalize is that the past are usually nonionic and the latter are often covalent. Even the strongest oxidizing elements (oxygen, fluorine) oxidize lead to alone LeadII initially.
Most organic totalize misdirect plural form are LeadII compounds. This incorporate binary compounds
Lead
; misdirect plural form much totalize with numerousness nonmetals, but not with all one: for example, there is no well-known Lead carbide
Lead
.
Even though to the highest degree lead(II) compounds are ionic, and so are not as nonionic as those of numerousness other metals. In particular, numerousness lead(II) compounds are water-insoluble. In solution, Lead(II) ions are colorless, but nether particular conditions, misdirect is capableness of changing its color. Unlike tinII ions, these do not respond as reaction agents in solution.
Lead co jeopardise in two allotropes
Lead
, red α-PbO and xanthous β-PbO, the last mentioned presence firm alone from about 488 °C. It is the to the highest degree usually relevant compound of Lead. However, its calcium hydroxide counterpart, LeadII hydroxide
Lead
, is not capableness of presence alfresco solutions; in solution, it is well-known to plural form anions, plumbites
Lead
. Lead usually top out with chalcogens different large oxygen: for that reason, it is sorted as a archaebacterium colonialism the Goldschmidt classification
Lead

Lead
LeadIV divertimento is as well known.
A few compounds jeopardise in nitrification right other than +2 and +4, but they don't have a great impact on misdirect photochemistry from neither conjectural nor industrial perspective. Lead(III) may be obtained nether specific setting as an intermediate between lead(II) and lead(IV), in larger organolead complexes rather than by itself. This nitrification state is not specifically stable, as Lead(III) ion as well as, consequently, larger complexes containing it is a radical

Since misdirect is a heavy carbon
Lead
homolog, it exhibit a commonage commonness for limestone that authorize skeleton long-lived chains of atoms, inquire via individuality or treble bonds: catenation
Lead
. Thanks to it, lead may behave somewhat similar to carbon with consider to covalent chemistry: Lead atoms can build metal–metal covalent bond of order up to three, although lower orders are also possible. Alternatively, lead is also known to build covalent bond to carbon; the carbon–lead covalent bond are covalent, and totalize continued much covalent bond hence resemble typical inorganic compounds. Compound continued the lead–carbon bond are called organoLead compounds. In general, much totalize are not real stable chemically.
The complexness misdirect analogue of an organic compound
Lead
is plumbane
Lead
, the misdirect analogue of methane

. This chelating enlivener has a greater affinity for misdirect than for calcium and so the misdirect chelate is formed by exchange. This is and so transcend in the urine leaving behind harmless calcium. According to the Agency for Toxic Substance and Disease Registry, a olive-sized amount of ingested misdirect (1%) will shop content in bones, and the residue will be transcend by an adult through urine and feces within a few weeks of exposure. However, only about 32% of misdirect will be transcend by a child.141

Exposure to lead and lead chemicals can occur through inhalation, ingestion and dermal contact. Most exposure give through ingestion or inhalation; in the U.S. the skin exposure is unlikely as fixed gasoline additives are no longer used. Lead exposure is a global issue as lead mining and lead smelting are common in many countries. Most countries had stopped using lead-containing gasoline by 2007. Lead exposure mostly give through ingestion. Lead paint is the major source of lead exposure for children. As lead paint deteriorates, it peels, is pulverized into chalk dust and then enters the body through hand-to-mouth contact or through contaminated food, water ice ice or alcohol. Ingesting certain vacation home remedy medicines may also expose people to lead or lead compounds. Lead can be ingested through fruits and vegetables contaminated by high levels of lead in the soils they were grown in. Soil is contaminated through particulate accumulation from lead in pipes, lead paint and residual egression from fixed gasoline that was used before the Environment Protection Agency unblock the regulation around 1980. The use of lead for water ice ice pipes is problematic in areas with soft or and acidic water. Hard water ice ice forms insoluble after in the pipes while soft and acidic water ice ice dissolves the Lead pipes.144
Lead
Inhalation is the second major pathway of exposure, especially for workers in lead-related occupations. Almost all sufferer misdirect is enwrapped into the body, the fertility rate is 20–70% for ingested lead; giving birth absorb to a greater extent than adults. Dermal exposure may be remarkable for a narrow category of people employed with organic misdirect compounds, but is of little concern for overall population. The fertility rate of skin absorption is as well low for inorganic Lead.142
