What’s lithium sulfide? Lithium Sulfide It is a yellow to white crystal that has an inverted fluorite structure. Li2S, which is a lithium sulfide, is its molecular formula. It has a molecular weight 45.95. The specific gravity to water of lithium sulfide (water = 1.66) is also 1:1.66. Lithium sulfuride has a melting point of 938°C and a boiling point of 1372°C. Lithium-sulfide dissolves easily in water. Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries can use lithium sulfide as an electrolyte.
Lithium sulfide’s physical and chemical properties
Physical properties
You can find white or yellow crystals.
Features an anti-fluorite design
The specific gravity of water is 1.66.
Water soluble, easily soluble, soluble, ethanol soluble, soluble, acid soluble, insoluble, alkali insoluble
Highly toxic hydrogen sulfide is released when lithium sulfide absorbs the water vapor from the air.
Separating lithium sulfide with acid will liberate hydrogen sulfuride. It can also react violently to nitric acids, but it is only possible for hydrobromic and hydroiodic acids to decompose the metal when it’s heated. The reaction with concentrated sulfuric Acid is slow, while it reacts strongly with dilute. The acid is heated to approximately 300 degrees Celsius in air. It then oxidizes by oxygen but not sulfur dioxide. Instead, it produces lithium sulfate.

Preparation and use of lithium sulfuride
You can prepare lithium sulfide in a number of ways. It was common to combine sulfur and lithium in order to create a reactant. Carbon or hydrogen could then be used to reduce lithium Sulfate with heating, to form lithium sulfide. The discovery that lithium and sulfur could act together in liquid ammonia was made later. Also, lithium ethoxide is capable of decomposing the ethanol-adduct from lithium hydrosulfide, thereby producing lithium sulfide. After this discovery, people began to use lithium pentoxide, hydrogen sulfide, to create lithium hydrogen, sulfide. They then vacuum-heat the lithium hydrogen, sulfide to make lithium sulfide.
Anhydrous lithium sulfuride is a high quality product that can be made by reacting metallic lithium in tetrahydrofuran with hydrogen sulfide.
Lithium sulfide can be used
Lithium sulfuride is primarily used in rechargeable battery lithium-ion batteries as an electrolyte.
Precautions and storage of lithium sulfide
It is easy to absorb water vapor from the air, and it hyrolyzes. This releases highly toxic hydrogen Sulfide gas. You should keep it in a dry, ventilated place, at room temperature.
The slightest amount of hydrogen sulfide can cause water body damage. Don’t expose large or undiluted amounts of product to groundwater, sewers or sewage systems. Also, don’t discharge any materials into the environs without treating.
Itching from lithium sulfide
The skin: Itching of the mucous membranes or skin
Irritation: The Effects of Irritation
Sensitization: No evidence of sensitization
