Applications

Pharmaceuticals, air-conditioning, humectant, drying agent, batteries, low temperature heat-exchange mediumLithium bromide is used for reconstitution of brines, as swelling agent for proteins and as electrolyte component in lithium battery. Used as brazing and welding flux. Lithium bromide is used as catalyst for the condensation of carbonyl compounds with active methylene compounds in the absence of solvent, operating medium for air-conditioning and industrial drying system. Also used in manufacturing pharmaceuticals and alkylation process. It also plays an important role in the synthesis of dihydropyrimidinones.

Notes

Extremely hygroscopic chemical compound. Keep the material in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place and keep way from strong oxidizing agents and strong acids.
