sec-Butyllithium is a very strong base, exceedingly useful in organic synthesis. SBL has found particular utility in the ortho metallation of aromatic substrates. SBL 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 SBL. References: The Chemistry of Organolithium Compounds, ed.

Lectro® Max Powder (SLMP®) enables a new generation of Li-ion batteries by providing an independent source for lithium, which opens up choices for both anode and cathode materials. Introducing lithium in a stabilized powder form with the anode host material, such as Si and Sn-based, to form a lithium-ion system leads to a higher energy battery with more efficient utilization of lithium. Using non-lithium providing cathodes like manganese, vanadium or other metal oxides and metal fluorides that are more overcharge tolerant and potentially have lower costs, leads to safer and cheaper batteries. When used in combination, these materials can potentially double the energy density of the current lithium-ion battery. Lectro® Max Powder (SLMP®) could be used to replace thin lithium foil applications and in Fusion Research Devices to improve plasma performance.
