160.45 (106.40anhy)
Form
Crystalline
Density
1.84
Storage & Sensitivity
Ambient temperatures.

Highly soluble in water, methanol, ethanol, ethyl acetate, diethyl ether, and acetone.

Applications

It is used as an oxygen source for chemical oxygen generators, as it liberates oxygen at high temperatures. Excellent solubility of lithium perchlorate permits its use in Diels-Alder reactions. It is also employed in lithium-ion batteries as an electrolyte, and act as chaotropic agent to denature proteins. It is used in Baylis-Hillman reaction as a catalyst in the coupling of alpha,beta-unsaturated carbonyl compounds with aldehydes.

Notes

Hygroscopic. Strong oxidizer and a corrosive solid. Above 400°C, it decomposes to give lithium chloride and oxygen.
