    Why should electrolysis for PB and Bromide be carried out in a fume cupboard

    Do you mean electrolysis of lead bromide? Well in that case, the lead should go to the negative electrode and coat it. The bromide ions should go to the positive electrode, become bromine gas (Br2)...and the bubbles will come off that solution. From experience, let me tell you breathing bromine gas in is not pleasant (it was an accident when i did it), so a fume hood should prevent this.
