Lithium nitrate Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical properties

Lithium Nitrate is an inorganic compound with the formula LiNO3 with highly water solubility. All metallic nitrates are inorganic salts of a given metal cation and the nitrate anion. The nitrate anion is a univalent (-1 charge) polyatomic ion composed of a single nitrogen atom ionically bound to three oxygen atoms for a total formula weight of 62.05. Nitrate compounds are generally soluble in water.
Lithium Nitrate is white trigonal crystal. It is soluble in water, ethanol, pyridine and ammonia. The aqueous solution is neutral.

Solubility in water (g/100ml)

Dissolved amount (g) per 100 milliliters of water at different temperatures (° C)




Lithium hydroxide or lithium carbonate is added to the reactor containing distilled water, and nitric acid is slowly added under stirring and heating to carry out the reaction. Then we evaporate it to dryness and heat it under vacuum at about 200 ° C, finally we get lithium nitrate. HNO3+LiOH→LiNO3+H2O

Explosive characteristics

May cause the acceleration of the burning of combustible materials. Prolonged exposure to heat or flames may result in an explosion.


Chemical Properties

White crystal


Used in ceramics, heat-exchange media, refrigeration systems.


ChEBI: The inorganic nitrate salt of lithium.

General Description

A white to light yellow colored crystalline solid. Denser than water. Contact with the material may cause irritation to skin, eyes, and mucous membranes. May be toxic by ingestion. May cause the acceleration of the burning of combustible materials. Prolonged exposure to heat or flames may result in an explosion.

Air & Water Reactions

Deliquescent. Soluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

Lithium nitrate is an oxidizing agent. Mixtures with alkyl esters may explode owing to the formation of alkyl nitrates; mixtures with phosphorus, tin(II) chloride, or other reducing agents may react explosively [Bretherick 1979. p. 108-109].

Health Hazard

Inhalation, ingestion or contact (skin, eyes) with vapors or substance may cause severe injury, burns or death. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may cause pollution.

Fire Hazard

These substances will accelerate burning when involved in a fire. Some may decompose explosively when heated or involved in a fire. May explode from heat or contamination. Some will react explosively with hydrocarbons (fuels). May ignite combustibles (wood, paper, oil, clothing, etc.). Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may create fire or explosion hazard.
