Lithium Sulfate

Lithium sulfate, anhydrous, is a white or colorless crystal with the formula Li2SO4. It is used in separation of calcium and magnesium. It has been tested as an additive for Portland cement and serves to speed up the hydration reaction which decreases the curing time. It is also researched as a potential component of ion conducting glasses and a new class of battery. Lithium sulfate is sometimes used as an alternative of lithium carbonate in psychiatry for the treatment of mania, endogenous depression, psychosis and also schizophrenia. Lithium sulfate has also been used as a catalyst in organic chemistry synthesis.
