Lithium Chloride is used as an alkali metal halide, a white, deliquescent solid at room temperature.Due to the smaller ionic radius and higher hydration energy of lithium, the solubility of lithium chloride is much greater than that of other chlorides (83g/100mL, 20°C).Its aqueous solution is alkaline.Lithium chloride is sodium chloride structure, the chemical bond is not a typical ionic bond, so it can be dissolved in many organic solvents, with ethanol, methanol, amines can form different composition of adducts.This property can be used to separate lithium chloride from alkali metal chloride.

Lithium Chloride is used as the raw material for making lithium metal.Used as aluminum welding agent, glass fiber, gelatin, air conditioning dehumidifier and special cement raw materials, but also used in the battery industry for the production of lithium manganese battery electrolyte and biological pharmaceutical intermediates.
Lithium Chloride was produced by the method of The hydrochloric acid.
