# What is the name of PbO_2?

Oct 11, 2016

$\text{Plumbic oxide}$.......

#### Explanation:

Or, more commonly, as $\text{lead(IV)oxide}$.

Because of its pronounced insolubility, this can be used as a very mild oxidizing agent (note that the reduction prod, $\text{lead(II)oxide}$ is also very insoluble in aqueous media).
