Lithium Nitrate

Leading manufacturer and exporter of lithium nitrate.

We offer to the clients accurate composition Lithium Nitrate which is actually an inorganic compound with chemical formula LiNO3. Produced by the process of reacting lithium hydroxide or lithium carbonate with nitric acid, it is also the lithium salt of nitric acid. This is a very good oxidizing agent which plays a vital part in manufacturing flares and fireworks of red color. Presently, many tests are being conducted on Lithium Nitrate to monitor if it can be used for concrete-pavement to withstand the constantly changing weathering effects.

Specifications:


  • Packaging is done in fiber drum lined with PE bag

  • Used in spacecraft and submarines for absorbing excess carbon dioxide

  • Formation - Li2CO3 + 2HNO3 → 2LiNO3 + H2O + CO2

  • Melting Point – 2550C and Boiling Point – 8730C

Application

  • This deliquescent colourless salt is an oxidizing agent used in the manufacture of red-colored fireworks and flares.
  • Lithium Nitrate has been proposed as a medium to store heat collected from the sun for cooking
  • Lithium nitrate is also used as a catalyst which accelerates the break down of nitrogen oxides, through oxidation, found in soot
  • It is utilized in solute-solvent interactions at decreasing temperatures (i.e. 329-290 K) which in affect, can be used to transport inos in binary solutions of molten acetamide.

Packing: 25 kg PP bag with LDPE liner inside / 500 kg and 1000 kg Jumbo bag.
