How Is Lithium Produced?

Lithium isn’t a type of metal that can be easily mined. It can be extracted from mineral ore deposits or below-ground brine deposits (typically found in areas where there are salt flats) before being processed to separate from the waste material. Lithium is more readily available from brine deposits than ore deposits but can take months, or even years, to process through solar evaporation in ponds. The resulting lithium carbonate is the material that is used further along the process to make products such as lithium-ion batteries.

What is lithium carbonate?

Lithium carbonate, is an inorganic compound, chemical formula Li2CO3, molecular weight of 73.89, colorless monoclinic series crystal, slightly soluble in water, dilute acid, insoluble in ethanol, acetone. The thermal stability is lower than that of the carbonate of other elements of the same group in the periodic table, which is not delirized in the air, and can be added with lithium sulfate or lithium oxide solution to sodium carbonate. Its aqueous solution can be converted into carbon dioxide into acid salt, boiling hydrolysis. Used as ceramics, glass, ferrite and other raw materials, components to spray silver paste, used in medicine to treat mental depression.

What's lithium carbonate used for?

Although lithium carbonate can be used in many industries, one of its important uses is medicine.

Around 1,500 years ago, an African doctor used an alkaline spring for mental illness. For centuries, some European countries have been using springs to cure madness and other other mental disorders, with great efficacy. It was later found that it was mainly due to the lithium contained in these springs. In 1949, Dr. Katie in Australia found that lithium carbonate had a good therapeutic effect on manic psychosis, and soon in Australia and many other companies began to use it. Moreover, researchers found that lithium carbonate had a preventive effect on the recurrence of bipolar disease. Therefore, the special treatment and preventive effect of lithium carbonate on affective disorders such as bipolar disorder is affirmed. Thus opened a new application prospect of lithium carbonate in the pharmaceutical industry.

Lithium carbonate is known as an emotional correction agent in the pharmaceutical industry, and after years of research, it has proved the positive effect of lithium carbonate on the treatment of manic psychosis. In the treatment of typical mania, lithium carbonate has become the first choice. For some organic brain syndrome without mania, the treatment with lithium salt also improves the cognitive function, emotional effect, memory and agitation and wandering symptoms. It also has a preventive effect on recurrent unipolar depression and bipolar bipolar, which can greatly reduce the number of attacks, and has a better performance than some other anti-bipolar drugs.

Lithium carbonate, used in treating manic psychosis, has been widely used in many psychiatric hospitals in China, and has achieved significant results and significant social benefits.

In addition, lithium carbonate is also effective in the treatment of hyperthyroidism. Lithium carbonate has the function to inhibit the release of thyroid hormone, which can significantly reduce the average serum T4 iodine and T3 iodine during the treatment.

With the in-depth research on lithium carbonate pharmacology and the expansion of clinical exploration scope, the field of clinical application of lithium compounds will expand. Therefore, lithium carbonate will play an more and greater role in promoting human health.

As the absolute risk reduction is rather small, it seems uncertain, if lithium reduces overall mortality over a course of years, which is the usual duration of treatment.

Does lithium calm you down?

LITHIUM CARBONATE is a mood stabilizer that is used to prevent and treat mood disorders such as mania and bipolar disorder.
