General description

Prepared by reacting lead(II) oxide /acetate or carbonate with HCl. In crystalline PbCl2, each atom is coordinated by nine Cl atoms, six of which lie at the apices of a trigonal prism and the remaining three beyond the centers of the three prism faces. Each Cl is coordinated by four or five Pb atoms. Upon exposure to air it form basic chlorides such as PbCl2.Pb(OH)2.


Lead(II) chloride (PbCl2) (99.999%) is a lead halide that can be used in the formation of a precursor solution to form perovskite films. These films and sheets can be used in the fabrication of hybride solar absorbers and photodetectors. It also has potential application as a thermoelectric material.

Methods of Synthesizing Monodisperse Colloidal Quantum Dots

Colloidal quantum dots (CQDs) are semiconducting crystals of only a few nanometers (ca. 2–12 nm) coated with ligand/surfactant molecules to help prevent agglomeration.

Thiolated gold nanoclusters: A new class of photosensitizers

The past several decades have seen major advancements in the synthesis of metal nanomaterials. Most recently, controlled synthesis has become versatile enough to regulate the exact number of atoms and ligands of very small metal nanoparticles, referred to as “clusters”.
