Caption: Insoluble compound in water. Animation showing the insoluble chemical compound lead (II) iodide (PbI2) not dissolving in water (H2O). This insoluble salt is yellow in colour, with a spatula used to place some in a conical flask of water. The animation zooms in on the chemical at a molecular level. The atoms are shown colour-coded: iodine ions (I-, purple) and lead ions (Pb2+, grey). Water molecules are also shown (oxygen, red; hydrogen white). The water molecules are attracted to the ions, but fail to overcome or disrupt the bonds between the lead (II) iodide atoms, and the chemical does not dissolve in the water.
