In the field of medicine, the solubility of chemicals plays a key role. Some ions can be helpful as a component of a compound, but others can be toxic when separated in solution. The same can be said for lead. Lead is a dense and soft metal, and accumulating lead in the body over a long period of time can have negative effects on the kidneys and brain.

For instance, the solubility of lead has been regulated by the Clean Water Act amendments of 1977 and 1978. These regulations are intended to keep the concentration of worker blood lead to a low of 0.06 mg Pb/100 g of whole blood. A higher concentration can cause protoplasmic poisoning.

Lead is useful for electrolysis, as it is resistant to corrosion. It is also used in a variety of industrial materials, such as phosphors for television-tube screens, and in a host of optical deposition processes. However, it is not the most biocompatible of substances, and ingestion can result in vomiting and a myriad of other unpleasant side-effects.

There are a number of other chemical compounds with similar properties to lead. For example, a number of other organic compounds contain electron rich ligands, which are highly effective in divalent lead complexes.

As a result, these compounds are incorporated into a wide array of modern technologies. They are also the basis for many novelty products.

Among them, the lead-difluoride phosphate combination is a good example. This white powder is soluble in water at a mere 20degC. But it is also a chemical that can be synthesized directly from lead and fluorine.
