Lead chromate pigments are included in a group of the most widely used pigments, which account for 3% of worldwide lead consumption. This study reports the photoactivity of commercial lead chromate pigment (i.e., chrome yellow) under simulated sunlight. It underwent photodissolution in the presence of organic acid and dissolved organic matter in the aqueous phase, releasing Pb(II) and Cr(III). Pb(II) was released more readily than Cr(III) which mainly formed hydroxides and oxides. The photodissolution can be activated by light with a wavelength <514 nm. the reaction is mediated by the reduction of cr(vi) in the pigment by self-generated electrons. the kinetics were mainly affected by the electron-hole separation efficiency which can be enhanced by electron donors. the reaction rate decreases with increasing solution ph as the photodissolution process consumes protons. the photodissolution of the chrome yellow pigment was further confirmed in a river water sample under natural sunlight, with 11.28% of lead and 2.56% of chromium released in 7 h. this study highlights the importance of considering photochemical processes in risk assessments and regulations of commercial semiconductor pigments, which are currently based on their solubility.
