Abstract
Measurements of the solubility of lead sulphate in 35% by weight sulphuric acid, pure water, and at two intermediate acid concentrations have been made over the temperature range 25C to -50C using differential pulse anodic stripping voltammetry. Values of the standard enthalpy of solution, derived from the data and from that of other workers, have been found to be higher than those obtained from emf measurements. The extent of lead sulphate ion pairing is analyzed at 25C and discussed. The slowness of equilibration of acid solutions supersaturated with lead sulphate was judged of importance in deciding the relevance of the use of thermodynamically calculated lead ion concentrations with respect to lead acid battery mechanisms.
