Lithium

Lithium is not found in a free elemental state and its compounds are widely dispersed in the earth's crust, although in low concentrations. Its total concentration is around 0,003% In its pure form, lithium is a silver-white metal and is generally more stable at room temperature with respect to other alkali metals. Lithium salts and oxides are used in many applications, for example in iron metallurgy it reduces the viscosity of stainless steel, in the pharmaceutical industry it is used in the synthesis of Vitamin A. But most lithium is used in the lithium batteries and lithium-ion batteries.

Lithium Hydroxide

Li

  • Family Li (Lithium)
  • CAS registry number 1310-66-3
  • Formula LiOH.H2O

Lithium hydroxide comes in the form of small crystals; it is soluble in water but not very soluble in ethyl and ether alcohol. Lithium hydroxide is widely used in the production of lithium salts or in the preparation of lithium soaps; it is used as a catalyst in esterification reactions, for the preparation of alkaline batteries and in the ceramics industry. If it comes into contact with the skin, thoroughly wash with water because lithium hydroxide is harmful and very irritating to the skin and mucous membranes.

Lithium Metal

Li

  • Family Li (Lithium)
  • CAS registry number 7439-93-2
  • Formula Li

Lithium is not naturally found in a free state, but is present in numerous minerals. Elementary lithium has a silvery white appearance and, unlike sodium that reacts with water violently, it does not cause an explosion when it comes into contact with water. As a metal, lithium is used in the nuclear field and in the pharmaceutical field for the synthesis of vitamin C; Lithium compounds are widely used in the ceramics and glass industries and in the plastic industry.
