Content: 98.5 per cent to 100.5 per cent.
Appearance: White or almost white powder.
Solubility: Slightly soluble in water, practically insoluble in ethanol (96 per cent).
A. When moistened with hydrochloric acid, it gives a red colour to a non-luminous flame.

Lithium Carbonate USP GradeIdentification:
Li2CO3 --- 73.89
Carbonic acid, dilithium salt.
Dilithium carbonate -- [554-13-2].
Lithium Carbonate contains not less than 99.0 percent of Li2CO3, calculated on the dried basis.
A: It effervesces upon the addition of an acid, yielding a colorless gas which, when passed into calcium hydroxide, immediately causes a white precipitate to form.
B: When moistened with hydrochloric acid, it imparts an intense crimson color to a nonluminous flame.
Reaction: A saturated solution is alkaline to litmus.
Loss on drying: Dry it at 200 for 4 hours: it loses not more than 1.0% of its weight.
Insoluble substances: Transfer 10 g to a 250-mL beaker, add 50 mL of water, then add slowly 50 mL of 6 N hydrochloric acid. Cover with a watch glass, and boil the solution for 1 hour. Filter the solution through a dried, tared filtering crucible fitted with a glass-fiber filter disk, using suction. Wash the filter with hot water until the last washing is free from chloride when tested with. Dry the crucible in an oven at 110 for 1 hour: the weight of the residue is not more than 0.02% of the weight of Lithium Carbonate taken.
Chloride: To 500 mg of it add 1.2 mL of nitric acid, dilute with water to 50 mL, and add 1 mL of silver nitrate any turbidity formed is not greater than that produced in a similarly treated control solution containing 0.50 mL of 0.020 N hydrochloric acid (0.07%).
Sulfate: Dissolve 1.0 g in 10 mL of 3 N hydrochloric acid, dilute with water to 40 mL, and add 1 mL of barium chloride. Prepare a standard solution of equal volume containing 1.0 mL of 0.020 N sulfuric acid, 1 mL of 3 N hydrochloric acid, and 1 mL of barium chloride. The turbidity produced in the test solution, after 3 minutes, is not greater than that produced in the standard solution (0.1%).
Aluminum and iron: Dissolve 500 mg in 10 mL of water by the dropwise addition, with agitation, of hydrochloric acid. Boil the solution, then cool it, and to 5 mL of the solution add 6 N ammonium hydroxide until the reaction is alkaline: no turbidity or precipitate is observed.
Calcium: Suspend 5.0 g in 50 mL of water, and add a slight excess of 3 N hydrochloric acid. Boil the clear solution to expel carbon dioxide, add 5 mL of ammonium oxalate, render alkaline with 6 N ammonium hydroxide, and allow to stand for 4 hours. Filter through a filtering crucible, and wash with warm water until the last washing yields no turbidity with calcium chloride. Place the crucible in a beaker, cover it with water, add 3 mL of sulfuric acid, heat to 70 , and titrate with 0.10 N potassium permanganate to a pale pink color that persists for 30 seconds. Not more than 3.76 mL of 0.10 N potassium permanganate is consumed (0.15%).
Sodium: the sodium limit is 0.1%.
Heavy metals: the limit is 0.002%.

EINICS EC-No.: 209-062-5
4. First Aid Measures
Always get medical attention after the first aid is over.
Inhalation: If Lithium Carbonate is inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen and get medical attention immediately.
Ingestion: Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical attention.
Skin Contact: Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention. Wash clothing and shoes before reuse.
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting lower and upper eyelids occasionally. Get medical attention immediately.
5. Fire Fighting Measures
Fire: Not considered as a fire hazard.
Fire Extinguishing Media: Water spray, dry chemical, alcohol foam, or carbon dioxide.
Special Information: In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full face piece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode.
6. Accidental Release Measures
Small Spill: Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in a convenient waste disposal container.
Large Spill: Corrosive solid. Stop leak if without risk. Do not get water inside container. Do not touch spilled material. Use water spray to reduce vapors. Prevent entry into sewers, basements or confined areas.
7. Handling and Storage
Keep Lithium Carbonate in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and aerosols. Protect against physical damage. Containers of Lithium Carbonate may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (dust, solids); observe all warnings and precautions listed for the product.
8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Airborne Exposure Limits: OSHA-PELs TWA: 15 (Total dust), 5 (Respirable fraction) as Particulates not otherwise classified
Ventilation System: A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures as low as possible. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area. Please refer to the ACGIH document, Industrial Ventilation, A Manual of Recommended Practices, most recent edition, for details.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved): For conditions of use where exposure to dust or mist is apparent and engineering controls are not feasible, a particulate respirator (NIOSH type N95 or better filters) may be worn. If oil particles (e.g. lubricants, cutting fluids, glycerin, etc.) are present, use a NIOSH type R or P filter. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator. WARNING: Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres.
Skin Protection: Wear impervious protective clothing, including boots, gloves, lab coat, apron or coveralls, as appropriate, to prevent skin contact.
Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles and/or full face shield where dusting or splashing of solutions is possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
