Preparation method of lithium sulfide

The purchasing pace at the demand end of the international thermal coal market continues to slow down and the international thermal coal price continues to decline. Prices for thermal coal at major international ports continued to fall last week as buyers in Europe slowed in recent days for April, coupled with weaker-than-expected import demand from End users in China. According to China Coal Market net monitoring:  Australia Newcastle port thermal coal price index was 253 USD/ton, compared with 309.02 USD/ton, down 56.02 USD/ton, down 18.13%. South Africa's Port Richards thermal coal price Index was $264.5 / mt, down the US $62.72 / mt or 19.17% from US $327.22 / mt. The European ARA Tri-port thermal coal price Index was $281.8 / ton. Does the price of thermal coal in major international ports continue to decline to affect the price of the lithium sulfide Li2S, lithium sulfide Li2S overview, lithium sulfide Li2S application, lithium sulfide Li2S suppliers, lithium sulfide Li2S price? 

Overview of lithium sulfide Li2S powder

Lithium sulfide, molecular formula: Li2S, is lithium sulfide, molecular weight: 45.95. White to yellow crystals. Has an anti-fluorite structure. The specific gravity is 1.66 (water = 1), the melting point is 938°C, and the boiling point is 1372°C. Soluble in water, soluble in ethanol, soluble in acid, insoluble in alkali. as a potential electrolyte material in rechargeable lithium-ion batteries.

Preparation method of lithium sulfide

Lithium sulfide can be prepared by a variety of methods. In the past, lithium and sulfur have been co-heated for reaction, and lithium sulfide has been prepared by reducing lithium sulfate with carbon or hydrogen under heating conditions. Later, it was found that lithium sulfide can be obtained by the action of lithium and sulfur in liquid ammonia, or by the decomposition of lithium ethoxide into the ethanol adduct of lithium hydrosulfide. Since then, some people have used lithium pentoxide to react with hydrogen sulfide to first obtain lithium hydrosulfide, and then decompose lithium hydrosulfide in vacuum to prepare lithium sulfide.

High quality anhydrous lithium sulfide can be prepared by reacting metallic lithium with hydrogen sulfide in tetrahydrofuran.


Application of lithium sulfide Li2S powder

Lithium sulfide (Li2S) is a product specially designed for high-performance batteries and can be used as an electrode material or as a precursor for solid electrolytes. As an electrode material, it not only has high capacity, but also overcomes many problems brought by pure sulfur electrodes.

The lithium sulfide Li2S powder is an anti-fluorite semiconductor (with a band gap of 3.865 eV). It exists in orthogonal and cubic structures. The densities of the orthorhombic and cubic structures are 1.75g/cm3 and 1.63g/cm3, respectively.

Lithium sulfide Li2S powder has been studied as a superconductor similar to MgB2. It is also used as a cathode material for rechargeable lithium-sulfur batteries.
