Application:

Lithium chloride is mainly used for the production of lithium metal by electrolysis of a LiCl / KCl melt at 450 °C (842 °F). LiCl is also used as a brazing flux for aluminium in automobile parts. It is used as a desiccant for drying air streams. Lithium chloride is also used as a flame colorant to produce dark red flames. Lithium chloride is used as a relative humidity standard in the calibration of hygrometers. At 25 °C (77 °F) a saturated solution (45.8%) of the salt will yield an equilibrium relative humidity of 11.30%. Additionally, lithium chloride can itself be used as a hygrometer. It can be used to precipitate RNA from cellular extracts
