Description of Lithium hydride

Lithium hydride is the inorganic compound with the formula LiH. It is a colorless solid, although commercial samples are grey. Characteristic of a salt-like, or ionic, hydride, it has a high melting point and is not soluble but reactive with all organic and protic solvents; it is soluble and non-reactive with certain molten salts such as lithium fluoride, lithium borohydride, and sodium hydride. With a molecular mass of slightly less than 8, it is the lightest ionic compound.

What is Lithium hydride?

Part I: Introduction

With the progress of science and technology and the development of society, chemical products have invariably permeated our daily lives, in medicine, food, cosmetics, electronics, industry, and other areas, becoming an essential part of our lives. One such product is Lithium hydride which has developed particularly rapidly in recent years. Do you know about Lithium hydride?

The official answer: Lithium hydride is an inorganic compound with the molecular formula LiH. It is a hydride of lithium, also known as lithium monohydroxide, with a molecular weight of 7.95.

It is a colorless crystal, usually gray with impurities. Lithium hydride is a salt-like hydride with a high melting point and is thermally stable. Thermal conductivity decreases with increasing temperature and varies with composition and pressure. Lithium hydride is flammable and reacts violently with water to produce corrosive lithium hydroxide and hydrogen gas. It is not generally a hydride reducing agent, except in the synthesis of specific metal-like hydrides. For example, silanes can be chemically reacted by lithium hydride and silicon tetrachloride via the Sundermeyer process.

What’s the application of Lithium hydride?

1、Used as a desiccant, hydrogen generator, organic synthesis reducing agent, etc.
2、Used as a source of hydrogen generation in the military. Organic synthesis is used as a reducing agent.
3, lithium hydride in organic synthesis, used as a condensation agent, reducing agent, alkylation reagent, desiccant, and also a very good hydrogen storage material.
4, lithium deuteride in lithium hydride is the source of the element deuterium for fusion in the hydrogen bomb
Production method: put the lithium into the reaction tube made of stainless steel in the dry box, cover, and vacuum, and then pass the hydrogen, in the hydrogen pressure for an atmosphere, the temperature of 725 ℃ to maintain 15h of Chemicalbook, in the case of continuing to pass hydrogen, cooling, remove the reaction from the dry box, into a nitrogen-sealed bottle, stored in a dark place, the purity of the lithium hydride up to 99.8 The purity of lithium hydroxide is 99.8%.

Peter has been my partner for many years, we met at the Shanghai CPHI Fair in 2014, for the first time I didn't have much interest in Peter's products because our company had a stable supplier. Although we didn't work together, Peter would often send me important news and interesting trend information about the industry, so we became good friends, even though I didn't place any orders with him during this time, even if it was a sample order. In September 2016, our original supplier was unable to provide us with the quality and delivery guarantees we needed, so I first thought of Peter and his company. Until now, we have maintained a very good personal friendship in addition to a steady business relationship.

In all my years of sourcing from China, I first time to found that working with Sincere Chemical was so good, they helped me with all the production and delivery as well as a lot of technical expertise, which saved me a lot of time. When I first approached Peter for a quotation for Optical Brightener, he made me a detailed quotation with not only prices but also foreign trade details, company profile, company strengths, R&D capabilities, production capacity, packaging methods, raw material control, environmental protection, and much more. This information was a very important reference for me in making purchasing decisions. Sincere Chemical is a trustworthy supplier and I believe our business will grow from strength to strength!

Hi, I'm Kim, I'm Peter's partner and although I don't like him very much (because he never gives me more money for my prices, hahaha) I'm still willing to write him customer feedback. As an international buyer, I have to deal with a lot of things every day and my inbox is often full of development letters. It's a lot of junk and meaningless pleasantries, which I don't like that much, but Peter's emails always give me a better understanding of the product and the industry. I am also very pleased with his work ethic, and I am very happy with his work every time I work with him, not only in providing quotations but also in facilitating all the details of my work so that I can concentrate more on other things, so he is the best supplier for me. Although his prices are not the lowest among all suppliers, his products give me the greatest peace of mind.
