Lead oxide nanoparticles were synthesized by sol-gel method using lead acetate and polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) as a precursor. PbO nanopowder were characterised by UV, XRD and FTIR. The thin film of PbO nanopowder by adding PVA were prepared by solution casting method and conductivity of thin film is measured. X-ray diffraction pattern shows the crystalline nature of PbO with grain size 63.00 nm. From UVspectroscopy the band gap energy is found to be 5.52eV. FTIR spectra confirms the presence of PbO nanoparticles and the dc electrical conductivity is found to be 1.19 x 10- 5 eV

Keywords: lead oxide, sol-gel synthesis, XRD, UV-spectroscopy, FTIR, dc electrical conductivity.
