Introduction and Application of Lithium Acetate Dihydrate


Lithium Acetate Dihydrate

CAS No.: 6108-17-4 EINECS(EC#): 208-914-3 Molecular Weight: 102.02 Molecular Formula: LiOOCCH3·2H2O MDL Number: MFCD00066949

Lithium Acetate Dihydrate (6108-17-4) is white moderately water-soluble crystalline powder with stench-acetic odor. It is also called for Acetic acid lithium salt dihydrate. It is incompatible with strong oxidizing agents. It decompounds to yield carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, oxides of Lithium. All metallic acetates are inorganic salts containing a metal cation and the acetate anion, a univalent (-1 charge) polyatomic ion composed of two carbon atoms ionically bound to three hydrogen and two oxygen atoms (Symbol: CH3COO) for a total formula weight of 59.05. Acetates are excellent precursors for production of ultra-high purity compounds, catalysts, and nanoscale materials. Lithium acetate dihydrate (6108-17-4) can be used to separate saturated fatty acids from unsaturated fatty acids. In pharmaceutical industry, it is used for the preparation of diuretics. In addition, it is used as Lithium-ion battery material.
