Lithium Metal, Alloy Grade High Purity

High purity alloy grade lithium metal with a lower impurity profile than our standard alloy grade metal is offered to meet the demanding requirements of the production of lightweight aluminum lithium alloys, magnesium lithium alloys, and other similar lightweight metal applications. The purity of this grade of lithium metal enhances the finished product properties and is especially desirable within the aerospace and automotive industries.

Lithium Metal, Technical Grade

The unique properties of lithium metal allow it to be used in various applications. Lithium has an atomic number of 3 and an atomic weight of 6.941. It is slightly harder than sodium, but softer than lead, and is extremely light with a density of 0.531 g/cm3, or about half that of water. The wide range between the melting point of 180.5°C and the boiling point of 1336°C along with its excellent heat capacity makes lithium a good medium for heat sink or heat transfer applications. Lithium is also a strong reducing agent and reacts readily even with weak oxidizers--reacting with nitrogen at ambient temperature. Even though lithium is a powerful reducing agent in many reactions, it is less reactive than the other elements in the alkali metals group.

Lithium Methoxide (LiOMe) 10% in Methanol

LiOMe is a mild base used mainly in organic synthesis, most often in transesterifications. This reagent is offered currently in methanol solution of LiOMe (2.2M) and therefore is very easy to transfer from shipping container to storage or reactor. On contact with moisture, it is converted to methanol and lithium hydroxide causing the solution to become cloudy. For leading references, consult J. Mater. Res. 1999, 14, 1510.

Lithium tri-tert-butoxyaluminum hydride (TBLAH)

Lithium tri-tert-butoxyaluminum hydride is less reactive than lithium aluminum hydride (LAH) and is very useful in selective reductions of acyl halides, aldehydes, ketones, and esters. This reagent generally shows increased solubility, particularly at low temperatures in organic solvents. For reviews see: 1) H.C. Brown; J.Am.Chem.Soc. 1964, 86, 1089; 2) J. Malek; M. Cerny, Synthesis, 1972, 217; and 3) J. Malek, Org. React. 1985, 34,1.

n-Butyllithium in Cyclohexane (15% soln)

n-Butyllithium is a very strong base, exceedingly useful in organic synthesis. NBL has found particular utility in deprotonation and metal–halogen exchange reactions. NBL is also a very effective initiator of anionic polymerization of styrene and conjugated dienes. The synthesis of solution SBR and of styrenic thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs), in particular, is facilitated by NBL. References: The Chemistry of Organolithium Compounds, ed. Zvi Rappoport and Ilan Marek, Wiley, 2004, West Sussex, England.
