The compound, lead hydroxide Pb_6O_4(OH)_4, was prepared by a method used for the first time in the authors laboratory. The compound was identified by XRD and it's purity was determined by analytical methods (100%). The thermal characteristics of this compound were investigated by using a thermogravimetry (TGA). This compound was found to be stable at room temperature and at 160\degree C will decompose completely to produce lead (II) oxide.
