Rationalise the given statements and give chemical reactions:
• Lead (II) chloride reacts with .
• Lead (IV) chloride is highly unstable towards heat.
• Lead is known not to form an iodide,
(c) Lead is known not to form . Pb (+4) is oxidising in nature and is reducing in nature. A combination of Pb(IV) and iodide ion is not stable. Iodide ion is strongly reducing in nature. Pb(IV) oxidises and itself gets reduced to Pb(II).
