Abstract

Summary Aquodiethyllead(IV) ion undergoes a two-electron reduction at the dropping mercury electrode. E 1/2 is −0.37 V vs. SCE in acidic solution and becomes more negative with a slope of 25 mV/pH unit in neutral and alkaline buffers. The diradical initially formed decays rapidly by disproportionation to tetraethyllead and lead metal and by transmetallation to diethylmercury. Disproportionation is the major decay path over the accessible concentration range.
