  • abbr. lithium chloride


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • In this battery lithium dissolves from Li metal on the negative electrode and the resulting lithium ions combine with thionly chloride (SOCl2) to form lithium chloride (LiCl) in the positive electrode.

    A Brief History of Batteries- Part 1

  • To be used in a lithium battery, however, the LiCl must first react with soda ash to precipitate lithium carbonate (Li2CO3), which can then be processed into metallic lithium for use in making a battery's cathode.

  • Chile is the world's largest producer of LiCl - not only because Chile already has highly developed mining, transport and processing infrastructure, but because its climate and geography are favorable for the evaporation that is central to producing lithium.

  • An estimated 70 percent of the world's LiCl deposits are found in South

  • LiCl becomes more concentrated as the brine is reduced by solar radiation, heat and wind.

  • The process of harvesting LiCl exploits the same natural process that initially created the salt flat - evaporation.

  • Underneath the dried salt layer is a layer of brine - groundwater with a high concentration of LiCl in solution.

  • Salares result when pools of salt water, which contain LiCl, accumulate in basins that lack drainage outlets, allowing the water to gradually evaporate and leave dense layers of salt behind.

  • Lithium can be obtained in small quantities in the form of lithium chloride (LiCl) from just about anywhere in the world, but concentrated deposits - called salares - are found only in a few places.

  • They did this by electrolysis of a LiCl/KC1 melt at 450 C, In the 1940's Lithium Chloride was used instead of salt, but was soon discontinued because of toxic effects.
