Large doses of lithium ion have caused dizziness and prostration, and can cause kidney
damage if sodium intake is limited. Dehydration, weight loss, dermatological effects, and
thyroid disturbances have been reported. Central nervous system effects that include
slurred speech, blurred vision, sensory loss, ataxia, and convulsions may occur. Diarrhea,
vomiting, and neuromuscular effects such as tremor, clonus, and hyperactive reflexes may
occur as a result of repeated exposure to lithium ion., Bromide rashes, especially of the
face, and resembling acne and furunculosis, often occur when bromide inhalation or
administration is prolonged., Acute symptoms of overexposure include:, depression,
psychosis, To the best of our knowledge, the chemical, physical, and toxicological

About Ultra Dry Lithium Bromide

American Elements specializes in producing Lithium Bromide in an ultra dry form for use as a compound in semiconductors and other high purity applications. Most metal bromide compounds are water soluble for uses in water treatment, chemical analysis and in ultra high purity for certain crystal growth applications. The bromide ion in an aqueous solution can be detected by adding carbon disulfide (CS2) and chlorine. Ultra Dry Lithium Bromide is generally immediately available in most volumes. High purity, submicron and nanopowder forms may be considered. American Elements produces to many standard grades when applicable, including Mil Spec (military grade); ACS, Reagent and Technical Grade; Food, Agricultural and Pharmaceutical Grade; Optical Grade, USP and EP/BP (European Pharmacopoeia/British Pharmacopoeia) and follows applicable ASTM testing standards. Typical and custom packaging is available. Additional technical, research and safety (MSDS) information is available as is a Reference Calculator for converting relevant units of measurement.

Related Elements

Bromine

See more Bromine products. Bromine (atomic symbol: Br, atomic number: 35) is a Block P, Group 17, Period 4 element. Its electron configuration is [Ar]4s23d104p5. The bromine atom has a radius of 102 pm and its Van der Waals radius is 183 pm. In its elemental form, bromine Bromine Bohr Model has a red-brown appearance. Bromine does not occur by itself in nature; it is found as colorless soluble crystalline mineral halide salts. Bromine was discovered and first isolated by Antoine Jérôme Balard and Leopold Gmelin in 1825-1826.

Lithium

Lithium Bohr ModelSee more Lithium products. Lithium (atomic symbol: Li, atomic number: 3) is a Block S, Group 1, Period 2 element with an atomic weight of 6.94. The number of electrons in each of Lithium's shells is [2, 1] and its electron configuration is [He] 2s1. The lithium atom has a radius of 152 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 181 pm. Lithium was discovered by Johann Arvedson in 1817 and first isolated by William Thomas Brande in 1821. The origin of the name Lithium comes from the Greek wordlithose which means "stone." Lithium is a member of the alkali group of metals. It has the highest specific heat and electrochemical potential of any element on the period table and the lowest density of any elements that are solid at room temperature. Elemental LithiumCompared to other metals, it has one of the lowest boiling points. In its elemental form, lithium is soft enough to cut with a knife its silvery white appearance quickly darkens when exposed to air. Because of its high reactivity, elemental lithium does not occur in nature. Lithium is the key component of lithium-ion battery technology, which is becoming increasingly more prevalent in electronics.
