Lead is a soft, malleable and ductile metal. The quantity of lead in the earth’s crust is 14 ppm., The main source of supply being the ore “galena”, lead (II) sulphide (PbS) which occurs in the form of gray cubic crystals, often with the “blonde”, the equivalent zinc sulphide.
Lead oxidizes readily in humid air and is stable with oxygen and water but dissolves in nitric acid. It is a poor electrical and thermal conductor but its resistance to corrosion is reasonable. The applications for this metal are vast and diverse; its relative impermeability to radiation, for example, makes it ideal as a protective material in X-ray applications. It is also used for varnishing ceramics, batteries, painting, as an additive in gasoline (tetraethyl lead) and as an essential constituent of the solder filler metal. Its use, however, is ruled out as it is now known that lead is harmful to health and, in particular, to that of children.
