Scientists from the Louvre Museum and the CNRS Research Institute used an electrode which was one-tenth the thickness of a human hair to look at the effect lead chloride salt synthesised by Egyptians had on a single cell.
The research was carried out using a tiny electrode, the 10th of the size of a hair, to look at the effect of a lead chloride synthesised by the Egyptians (laurionite) on a single cell.

Lead acetate reacts with ferric chloride to produce insoluble white lead chloride.
This is also an order of magnitude lower solubility than basic lead chloride, the most common reaction product of stabilization with lead oxides.
AoBut Aowhether or not the manufacture of these lead chlorides was deliberately connected to preventive health care by Egyptians,Ao the researchers wrote, Aoit is clear that such intentional production remains the first known example of a large scale chemic process.
