Livent Lithium Hydroxide


Livent lithium hydroxide (LiOH) has the highest purity levels of all lithium compounds available in the chemicals market. Lithium Hydroxides (CAS# 1310-66-3) and other lithium salts are produced from lithium oxide ore (Li2O) extracted from lithium mining operations around the globe. Livent is one of the leading lithium producers worldwide with vast supply chain capabilities and reliable customer service through ChemPoint.

Lithium hydroxides from Livent are available in two forms, anhydrous and monohydrate. Anhydrous LiOH is used as an intermediate generator in organic synthesis, a catalyst in alkyd resin manufacture and esterification reactions, a stabilizer in some photographic developers, and also as a heat sink material. It can act to absorb carbon dioxide from sealed environments as well. Grades of lithium monohydrate are useful for the manufacture of fine chemicals, lithium greases, specialty resins, and as a precursor in making critical battery materials.

Specific grades of anhydrous lithium hydroxide and monohydrate compounds (LTHM) offer reduced levels of minerals such as CaO, NaOH, Mg, and SiO2, which are known to be problematic in certain end-use applications including electric vehicles, heat transfer mediums, storage-battery electrolytes, and general battery technologies.
