Application

LiClO4 is used as an electrolyte salt for lithium-sulfur batteries. LiClO4 acts as a catalyst in the solvent free thiolysis of epoxides. It has been used in various organic transformations.

General description

Lithium perchlorate (LiClO4) is a neutral salt with high solubility. LiClO4 finds use as an electrolyte for lithium-sulfur batteries; it has been shown to give rise to the effective inhibition of the chemical polysulfide shuttle which subsequently boosts the columbic efficiency through the charge process.

Sigma Life Science is committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for energy efficiency. Find details here.
