The Many Uses Lithium Acetate

Lithium acetate dihydrate (CH3COOLi·2H2O, CAS 6108-17-4, MW 102.02g/mol, MP 50-60C, HS code 291529, InChI=1S/C2H4O2.Li.2H2O/c1-2(3)4;;;/h1H3,(H,3,4);;2*1H2/q;+1;;/p-1, InChIKey: IAQLJCYTGRMXMA-UHFFFAOYSA-M) is a white granular powder that is freely soluble in water and short chain alcohols. Lithium acetate is currently available in two forms: anhydrous and dihydrate and is known for its low electrical conductivity. Anhydrous lithium acetate is obtained by heating commercial lithium acetate till the melting point of anhydrous salt, and then cooling it very slowly. Mainstream applications include:

Ø Buffer for ion exchange chromatography

Ø Catalyst

o for yeast biochemical engineering

o in the production industrial polymers and resins

Ø Precursor

o for lithium ceramic cathode materials

o in the manufacture of textiles and lubricant greases.

Ø Key component of solid polymer blend electrolytes

Ø PVC stabilizer

Ø Antistatic additive
