Applications

Lithium hydride is used as a precursor in the production of a variety of reagents in the synthesis, especially silane by reacting with silicon tetrachloride through Sundermeyer process and lithium aluminum hydride and lithium borohydride. It finds application in nuclear reactors as a shielding material. In addition, it is a hydrogen source or reducing agent to prepare other hydrides amides and 2H isotopic compound.

Notes

Air and moisture sensitive. Incompatible withstrong oxidizing agents, acids and alcohols. It reacts violently with water.

GHS Hazard and Precautionary Statements

Hazard Statements: H261-H314

In contact with water releases flammable gas. Causes severe skin burns and eye damage.

Precautionary Statements: P223-P231+P232-P260-P264b-P271-P280-P301+P330+P331-P303+P361+P353-P304+P340-P305+P351+P338-P310-P335+P334-P363-P370+P378q-P501c

Keep away from any possible contact with water, because of violent reaction and possible flash fire. Handle under inert gas. Protect from moisture. Do not breathe dust/fume/gas/mist/vapours/spray. Wash face, hands and any exposed skin thoroughly after handling Use only outdoors or in a well-ventilated area. Wear protective gloves/protective clothing/eye protection/face protection. IF SWALLOWED: Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. IF ON SKIN (or hair): Remove/Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Rinse skin with water/shower. IF INHALED: Remove to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. IF IN EYES: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Immediately call a POISON CENTER or doctor/physician. Brush off loose particles from skin. Immerse in cool water/wrap in wet bandages. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. In case of fire: Use CO2, dry chemical, or foam Dispose of contents/ container to an approved waste disposal plant
