Potassium chromate (K2CrO4) is a yellow chemical indicator used for identifying concentrations of chloride ions in a salt solution with silver nitrate (AgNO3). It is a class two carcinogen and can cause cancer on inhalation.
When reacted with Lead(II) Nitrate, it creates an orange-yellow precipitate, Lead(II) Chromate, and Potassium Nitrate.
Potassium Chromate is very toxic and may be fatal if swallowed. It may also act as a carcinogen, and can create reproductive defects if inhaled or swallowed. It also is a strong oxidizing agent. It may react rapidly, or violently. It is also possible that it may react explosively with other reducing agents and flammable objects.
