Lithium Hexafluorophosphate

Lithium hexafluorophosphate, LiPF6, is an important material for electrolyte of various lithium ion batteries, accounting for around 43% of the total cost of the electrolyte. Compared with LiBF4, LiAsF6, LiClO4 and other electrolytes, lithium hexafluorophosphate has better performances in solubility, conductivity, safety and environmental friendliness in organic solvents, and is currently the most popular lithium salt for electrolytes.

Despite being used as an electrolyte in Li-ion batteries, lithium hexafluorophosphate is also used in ceramic industries and in welding electrode manufacturing. It is also used in commercial secondary batteries, prism spectrometer and x-ray monochromator. Further, it catalyzes the tetrahydropyranylation of tertiary alcohol.
