What is lithium stearate and preparation method of lithium stearate powder

Russian President says if the European Union imposes an oil embargo, Europe will buy energy at the most expensive price and economic activity in Europe will weaken. Rosneft needs to change its business model. Russia will help facilitate settlement and access to loans and insurance in its own currency.

According to Reuters, the European Commission will unveil a 210 billion euro plan on how Europe can end its dependence on Russian fossil fuels by 2027 and use its distance from Moscow to accelerate a shift to green energy. According to a draft document seen by Reuters, Brussels will propose a three-pronged plan to wean countries off Russian fuel: switch to importing more non-Russian gas, move more quickly to promote renewable energy, and work harder to conserve energy. The draft measures, which include EU law, non-binding plans, and possible recommendations by national governments, are subject to change before publication.

Austria is not a member of NATO and will not seek membership in the future, the Austrian Foreign Minister said in Brussels recently. He stressed that it was "their choice" for Sweden and Finland to seek NATO membership, while Austria would remain neutral.

Lithium Stearate Overview

Lithium stearate is a chemical, also known as lithium octadecate, white powder or colorless crystals. Density: 1.025 g/cm3. Melting point: 220.0-221.5°C. Stable under normal temperature and pressure. Slightly soluble in water and ethanol, the solubility in water is 0.09g/100ml, and the solubility in ethanol is 0.04g/100ml. Lithium stearate is decomposed into stearic acid and the corresponding lithium salt in the presence of strong acid. Insoluble in ethyl acetate and mineral oil. It forms colloids in mineral oil.

Preparation method of lithium stearate powder

method one

10g of stearic acid was dissolved in 100mL of 95% ethanol, and titrated with 0.5mol/L lithium hydroxide ethanol solution (if lithium hydroxide cannot be completely dissolved in ethanol, water can be added to make it completely dissolved). Phenolphthalein was used as an indicator. After the reaction reached the equivalent point, the precipitated lithium stearate soap was extracted and filtered. The crude product can be recrystallized with 95% ethanol to obtain pure product.

Method Two

Sodium hydroxide is dissolved in water to form a solution, and stearic acid is added to fully react, and then heated to above 100°C. The lithium chloride is dissolved in water, cooled to room temperature, and added to the prepared sodium stearate solution for reaction; after the reaction is completed, it is released and dehydrated by a centrifuge. Use air drying equipment for drying to obtain finished products.

Application of lithium stearate

Lithium stearate is widely used in high temperature lubricants.

Lithium stearate is used as a stabilizer in the plastics industry.

Lithium stearate is used in cosmetic oils, gels, crayons, emulsifiers and dispersants.

Lithium stearate is used as a corrosion inhibitor in the petroleum industry.

Europe has been facing the gas shortage problem since the second half of 2021. The worsening situation in Russia and Ukraine has reduced Russian gas shipments to Europe, leading to a doubling of European gas prices. Energy shortages have sent electricity prices soaring. For these reasons, it is predicted that the price of the Lithium Stearate, Lithium Stearate Overview, Lithium Stearate Application, Lithium Stearate Suppliers, Lithium Stearate Price will continue to increase.
