LEAD OXIDE

Lead(II) oxide is the chemical compound with the formula PbO. Lead(II) oxide occurs in two forms: red, having a tetragonal crystal structure and yellow, having an orthorhombic crystal structure. Both forms occur naturally as minerals: the red form is known as litharge and the yellow form is known as massicot. While litharge is a tetragonal crystal, massicot is an orthorhombic crystal. In the tetragonal form the four Pb-O bonds have the same length, but in the orthorhombic two are shorter and two longer. When PbO occurs in tetragonal lattice structure it is called litharge; and when the PbO has orthorhombic lattice structure it is called massicot. The PbO can be changed from massicot to litharge or vice versa by controlled heating and cooling.
