Lithium oxide Usage And Synthesis
  • PreparationLithium oxide is prepared by heating lithium metal in dry oxygen above 100°C:
    4Li + O2→2Li2O
    Another method of preparation that yields pure lithium oxide involves thermal decomposition of lithium peroxide:
    2Li2O2→2Li2O + O2
    Also, the oxide can be produced by heating the pure lithium hydroxide at 800°C in a vacuum:
    2LiOH→Li2O + H2O
  • Chemical Propertiesfinely divided white powder(s) or crusty material; readily absorbs CO2 and H2O from the atmospheric; made by heating LiOH to ~800°C in a vacuum or by thermal decomposition of lithium peroxide; used in ceramics and special glass formulations and in lithium thermal batteries [HAW93] [MER06] [KIR81] [FMC93]
  • UsesLithium oxide is a strong alkali that absorbs carbon dioxide and water from the atmosphere. It is used in manufacturing ceramics and special types of glass.
  • UsesCeramics and special glass formulations, carbon dioxide absorbent
