Lithium carbonate powder CAS NO 554-13-2 is the important
materail to make lithium battery
Lithium carbonate is White, light, alkaline powder.
It is an inorganic compound, the lithium salt of carbonate with the
2CO3. This white salt is widely used in the processing of metal
For the treatment of bipolar disorder, it is on the World Health
Organization's List of
Essential Medicines, the most important medications needed in a

►Properties and reactions
Unlike sodium carbonate, which forms at least three hydrates,
exists only in the anhydrous form.Its solubility in water is low
relative to other lithium
salts. The isolation of lithium from aqueous extracts of lithium
ores capitalizes on
this poor solubility. Its apparent solubility increases 10-fold
under a mild pressure of
carbon dioxide; this effect is due to the formation of the
which is more soluble:
Li2CO3 + CO2 + H2O ⇌ 2 LiHCO3
The extraction of lithium carbonate at high pressures of CO2 and its precipitation
upon depressuring is the basis of the Quebec process.Lithium carbonate can also
be purified by exploiting its diminished solubility in hot water. Thus, heating a
saturated aqueous solution causes crystallization of Li
2CO3.Lithium carbonate, and other carbonates of group 1, do not
readily. Li2CO3 decomposes at temperatures around 1300 °C.
Extended use of lithium to treat various mental disorders has been
known to lead to
acquired nephrogenic diabetes insipidus.
Lithium carbonate is an important industrial chemical. It forms
with silica and other materials.
1. Glasses derived from lithium carbonate are useful in ovenware.
2. Lithium carbonate is a common ingredient in both low-fire and
3. Its alkaline properties are conducive to changing the state of
colorants in glaze particularly red iron oxide (Fe2O3).
4. Cement sets more rapidly when prepared with lithium carbonate,
and is useful for
5. When added to aluminium trifluoride, it forms LiF which gives a
electrolyte for the processing of aluminium.
6. It is also used in the manufacture of most lithium-ion battery
cathodes, which are
made of lithium cobalt oxide.
