Applications

Lithium bromide is used as a medium for air-conditioning, and a desiccant industrial drying system. It finds use as a sedative and hypnotic. Further it is employed in manufacturing pharmaceuticals, in alkylation processes, and as brazing and welding fluxes. In addition, lithium bromide-water solution is widely used in absorption refrigeration systems, absorption heat pumps and absorption heat transformers. l-Proline lithium bromide monohydrate (LPLBM) is a promising semi-organic nonlinear optical material.

Notes

Hygroscopic in nature and incompatible with strong acids and strong oxidizing agents. It decomposes to lithium oxide on heating.
