Applications

Lithium metaborate is an effective flux for silicates and other rock-forming minerals. An improved lithium metaborate fusion technique for inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometric analysis of felsic rocks is proposed. The determination of fluorine in silicate materials with a fluoride ion-selective electrode following fusion with lithium metaborate is described.

Notes

Hygroscopic. Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Store away from strong oxidizing agents, water, moisture, alkali metals, acid anhydrides, acids.
