The pH of the 1 mol/L solution is about 14. The relative density is 1.51. The temperature of 471 ° C (anhydrous). The boiling point of 925 ° C (decomposition). Corrosive.
Do not allow undiluted or large quantities of product to come into contact with ground water, waterways or sewage systems if it is slightly hazardous to water. If there is no government permission, do not discharge the materials into the surrounding environment.
Lithium hydroxide can be used as a developing agent and lubricating oil for spectroscopic analysis. The additive of the alkaline battery electrolyte can increase the electric capacity by 12% to 15% and increase the service life by 2 to 3 times. It can be used as an absorbent for carbon dioxide to purify the air inside the submarine.
Used in the production of lithium salt and lithium grease, electrolyte for alkaline storage batteries, absorption liquid for lithium bromide refrigerators, etc.; used in petroleum, chemical, light industry, nuclear industry, etc. When used in alkaline storage batteries, the aluminum content is not more than 0.06%, and the lead content is not more than 0.01%. Used as an analytical reagent, photographic developer, also used in the manufacture of lithium; used as a raw material for the preparation of lithium compounds. Can also be used in metallurgy, petroleum, glass, ceramics and other industries.
