Lead di(acetate) trihydrate starts melting at 75 °C (lost water of constitution). Above 200 °C a complete decomposition occurs.

Conclusions:
Lead di(acetate) trihydrate starts melting at 75 °C (lost water of constitution). Above 200 °C a complete decomposition occurs.

Description of key information

Lead di(acetate) trihydrate starts melting at 75 °C (lost water of constitution). Above 200 °C a complete decomposition occurs.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The substance as manufactured and marked is the lead di(acetate) trihydrate. The registrant tried to produce lead di(acetate), unhydrous for REACH purposes but without success. The lead di(acetate) decomposes during the drying process. Hence, the results for lead di(acetate) trihydrate are regarded as key information.
