Description

Other Notes

A -D suffix exists for administrative purposes only.
All -D packages are 100% the same product, same quality, same specification as the package sizes previously sold without a -D.

Application

Lithium chloride (LiCl) may be used in the synthesis of lithium perchlorate by reacting with perchloric acid.

General description

Lithium chloride (LiCl) participates in the Horner-Wadsworth-Emmons reactions of base-sensitive aldehydes and phosphonates. LiCl/N,N-Dimethylacetamide (DMAc) solvent system has been employed for dissolution of cellulose and synthesis of various cellulose derivatives (cellulose esters, carbamates, sulphonates and ethers). It can be synthesized from lithium carbonate (Li2CO3).
