Lithium chloride (LiCl) is a source of nucleophilic chloride anion and it can convert alcohols to alkyl chlorides. It catalyzes the ortholithiations of a range of arenes mediated by lithium diisopropylamide (LDA). LiCl solution is also used in the preparation of organozinc halides.

Amyloid precursor protein (APP) undergoes post-translational modification, including O- and N-glycosylation, ubiquitination, and phosphorylation as it traffics through the secretory pathway. We have previously reported that copper promotes a change in the cellular localization of APP. We now report that
