how do i convert lead sulfate from a "dead" battery back into sulfuric acid and lead? Answered
hello, i just ripped apart a sealed lead acid battery,
and have salvaged the plates, but now i have a problem, two actually
i have two types of plates
one is red-brown, the other, light grey , which i suspect is just lead, which, through my powers of deduction leaves me to beleive the redish crystaline substance that makes up the positive plates must be lead sulfate.
what i want to know, is what this red substance is,
and if it is lead sulfate, how do i convert it into sulfuric acid?
ive tried electrolysis, but the ph doesnt seem to change beyond normal, for plian old hho electrolysis!
am i getting something wrong here?
