Lithium hydroxide is a white monoclinic fine crystal. It tastes very spicy. Strongly alkaline. It absorbs carbon dioxide and moisture from the air. Soluble in water, solubility at 20 ° C is 12.8g / 100g H2O, slightly soluble in ethanol, insoluble in ether. The pH of the 1 mol/L solution was about 14. The relative density is 1.51. The temperature of 471 ° C (anhydrous). The boiling point is 925 ° C (decomposition). Corrosive.
Store in a dry, clean compartment. Stay away from fire and heat. Protect from direct sunlight. The package is sealed. It should be stored separately from oxidants, acids, carbon dioxide and food chemicals. Avoid mixing. Appropriate materials should be provided for the storage area to prevent leakage.
Railway transportation shall be carried out in strict accordance with the dangerous goods assembly table in the “Dangerous Goods Transportation Regulations” of the Ministry of Railways. Packaging should be completed at the time of shipment and the loading should be safe and reliable. During the transportation process, ensure that the container will not leak, will not collapse, will not fall, and will not be damaged. It is strictly forbidden to mix and transport with oxidants, acids, food chemicals, etc. Transport vehicles should be equipped with leakage emergency handling equipment when transporting. During transportation, attention should be paid to prevention of exposure, rain and high temperature. When transporting by road, follow the prescribed route and do not stay in residential areas and densely populated areas.
Treatment and neutralization at the sewage treatment plant. If possible, reuse the container or bury it in the designated location. When the amount is small, the aqueous solution of the product is neutralized, the solid is filtered out, and the solution is flushed into the sewer. The reaction produces heat and smoke, which is controlled by controlling the rate of addition.
