The correct answer is PbO (Lead monoxide)
It is a combination of Lead (II) ion and oxygen ion. It is also commonly known as “Litharge.”Pb stands for the lead while O stands for Oxygen (oxide in this case). It is also referred to as minimum, red lead, or monoxide. It comes in a bright red or orange solid. It is one of the most important metals.

PbO is used for manufacturing batteries and rustproof primer paint, which we use on our home walls. It can also be used to make the glass panels that can be used as the window frame.

Lead monoxide can also be used to create the hard bottom in aquariums that we keep at home or the ones in restaurants. PbO can reduce hydrogen to elemental lead at high temperatures.

Pb stands for Lead and Lead (II) Oxide can be written as PbO in its shortened form. Some people also refer to this as monoxide. There was a time when this was used together with glycerine sets in order to create the hard bottoms of the aquariums that may be seen in restaurants and even in various houses.

This can also be used in order to make the glass panels that can be placed in window frames. There are some who say that this used to be added to various types of paint that can be used for the walls of your house.
