How can Lithium Carbonate convert Co2 to Oxygen?
And I forgot to put Bi in the Carbonate. Sorry bout that. Asked by Maurine Lindy 1 month ago.

Actually, My friend has cleared my confusion. It doesn't convert it, it only absorbs the Co2. I am sorry i'm kind of new to chemistry. Because my friend asked a question about how does trees convert Co2 to oxygen. And is there any mechanical process to do so? Like a mechanical tree or something? (Exact Quote) Then we searched it online and found this dandy peice of information. They use a system of scrubbers to prevent air pollution in power and chemical plants and as rebreathers for underwater use. These methods mostly just absorb the CO2 using strong bases such as Lithium bicarbonate and Calcium bicarbonate where it becomes sequestered in the lattice of the base. So yeah, I might've misinterpreted a lot. Answered by Evette Lundsten 1 month ago.

Lithium carbonate is Li2CO3. Lithium carbonate is not classified as a strong base. The strong bases are the alkali metal hydroxides (i.e. NaOH) and the hydroxides of Ca, Sr and Ba. Lithium carbonate does form a basic solution but just barely. Any carbonate compound will liberate carbon dioxide, CO2, when treated with an acid. Li2CO3(s) + 2HCl(aq) --> 2LiCl(aq) + CO2(g) + H2O(l) Lithium carbonate can be decomposed by strongly heating it. Li2CO3(s) --Δ-> Li2O(s) + CO2(g) Carbon dioxide is not readily converted to oxygen and carbon by any simple laboratory process. Plants do it, but it certainly isn't a simple process and it requires an external energy source, the sun. It's called photosynthesis, and oxygen is a byproduct of the process. Answered by Deonna Seu 1 month ago.

Are you sure that you are properly interpreting what you have seen or read. I do not know of any reaction whereby a Gr1 carbonate can react with CO2 to produce oxygen I know only the opposite reaction: 4Li + O2 → 2Li2O then Li2O + CO2 → Li2CO3 This is not a reversible reaction that can produce oxygen when starting with Li2CO3 Can you provide any reference to where you found out that Li2CO3 can convert CO2 to O2 Answered by Lillia Kohlmyer 1 month ago.


Is lithium carbonate soluble in water?
Solublitity table Its a alkali metal so its soluble?? So most carbonates are soluble except grp 1 metal carbonates and ammonium carbonates? Asked by Tuyet Meakin 1 month ago.

Lithium carbonate is sparingly soluble in water. In fact, it isn't even hygroscopic (soaking of water from the atmosphere). The bonding is believed to be more covalent than ionic. A quick comparison between the solubility of Li and the other alkali-metal carbonates shows you this is the case (taken from wikipedia, but backed up by Chemistry of the Elements, 2nd ed.): Solubility of Li2CO3 (RT) = 13.2 g/L = 0.167 moles/L Solubility of Na2CO3 (RT) = 220 g/L = 2.08 moles/L Solubility of K2CO3 (RT) = 1120 g/L = 8.10 moles/L Solubility of Cs2CO3 (15oC) = 2605 g/L = 7.99 moles/L Thus, you can see that the very small Li+ cation binds carbonate way more strongly than the rest. This is a result of the smaller radius of lithium and explained quite well by Coulomb's law. Lithium is one of those special cations, that due to its size it can form a variety of organometallic compounds with covalent compounds. n-butyllithium, a typical reagent in organic synthesis is one such compound.

Lithium carbonate is a Gr1 alkali metal carbonate. The rule: All carbonates are insoluble EXCEPT: ammonium carbonate and Gr1 alkali metal carbonates. In accordance with this, lithium carbonate is soluble in water. But its solubility is not as high as, for example Na2CO3 solubility of Li2CO3 = 15.4 g/L (0 °C),13.2 g/L (20 °C), 7.2 g/L (100 °C). Note that the solubility decreases wirh increasing temperature. Answered by Angella Porraz 1 month ago.

My doctor just put me on Lithium Carbonate today and I was curious as to what side effects people have had while on it. I have read some info on it but that tells you what could happen. I am going to be taking 600MG. Is it best to take it in the morning or at night? What side effects has anyone experienced from taking it? Did you like taking it or no? Answered by Nakesha Siltman 1 month ago.

it's really important to eat when you take lithium. if i've taken it on an empty stomach i tend to get really bad nausea. also, be sure to drink lots of water (lithium has diuretic properties and you may feel thirsty all the time when you start it) and don't reduce the salt in your diet. if you get sick (vomiting, diarrhea, etc . . .) tell your doctor right away because the loss of water could raise your lithium levels so you may need to reduce your dose or stop it altogether for a while. if you have a headache or anything else like that, stay away from most OTC pain relievers. they could also raise lithium levels and make you sick. if you need to, only take Tylenol (acetaminophen) or aspirin because they will not affect your levels. it's up to you if you want to split it up between morning and night, but some people tolerate it better with two doses a day instead of one. it all depends how intense your side-effects are (if any). if you're just taking it once a day, it can be kinda sedating sometimes so i recommend taking it in the evening with food. there are drawbacks to lithium (blood draws to check levels) but i think it's a great drug. my psychiatrist has mentioned that there have been studies showing that lithium in particular has anti-suicidal properties and i wouldn't doubt it. also love the cheap price and that the profit doesn't go to a big, evil pharmaceutical company. before you start taking the drug, though, make sure you are familiar with lithium toxicity and its symptoms so you can let your doctor know as soon as possible. it can be dangerous if your lithium levels get too high and it is something to be mindful of while on lithium (one of the reasons why there are frequent level checks). Answered by Alexis Hitchen 1 month ago.

have you ever had a Lithium Blood point drawn presently? Your Lithium point may well be too low and require a upward push. Seroquel has a tendency to make many people drowsy yet some people can strengthen a tolerance to Seroquel at low doses. Seroquel facilitates me sleep while my suggestions won't cool down. i began out on the comparable Lithium dose yet my blood point replaced into 0.27 and that i replaced into accused of no longer taking drugs. sure, I persisted to have anger outbursts and extreme melancholy on Lithium on my own. once I dropped the antidepressants and greater suitable the Lithium dose to 1200 mg - the anger outbursts declined, the extreme melancholy could bring up and that i felt ok back. After 2 greater upward differences in Lithium dosage, I infrequently have anger outbursts - very uncommon situations of short melancholy and my Lithium ranges are interior the traditional variety. communicate on your psychiatrist at your next appointment or faster and communicate approximately drugs differences. If there is rigidity on your life that's inflicting anger outbursts and extreme melancholy, the time has come to administration those circumstances greater useful. Answered by Gussie Beedoo 1 month ago.

I take 600MG morning and night for bi-polar disease. In the beginning it made me slightly nausiated but it subsides quickly. To avoid this eat a little something non-acidic (like coffee or orange juice) It also makes you hella sleepy. Honestly, you will sleep a lot of this is a big MG change for you or especially if you have never taken lithium before. After 2-3 weeks you will feel balanced, healthy and wonderful. I wish you all the best in life's endeavors. Answered by Vonnie Knollman 1 month ago.

I take Lithium 600mg twice a day(1 tablet).I take it in the morning and night.It doesn't matter when you take it as long as it's whatever the amount of times you should take it.I don't mind taking it.I often have dreams from the medication.Otherwise it works well.

I take Lithium for Bi-Polar as prescribed by a Psychiatrist. It's an "anti-psychotic" or mood stabilizer. It attaches itself to the same molecular cell as salt does, therefore requiring an additional intake of salt and water throughout the day so as not to become too "toxic" by allowing too much lithium to replace the salt in the body...

Lithium carbonate is a drug most commonly used for Bipolar Disorder. I'm sure there are other indications. You can search for it on www.nlm.nih.gov and it should give you all the info you need. Answered by Karon Feser 1 month ago.


Lithium Carbonate side effects?
What are some common side effects regular people experience from Lithium Carbonate? Asked by Gustavo Vanderheyden 1 month ago.

Dehydration... you want to drink more. You also tend to pee more as well. Drink water when you're thirsty and those side effects usually wear off. Sometimes it makes you tremble a bit, also you can feel weak as well. You may also have stomach pain, nausea, or just feel upset. Most of these go away eventually or they lessen. But, be careful since it is very easy to go into lithium toxicity. The therapeutic dosage and the toxic dosage are very close (unlike most medications) and it isn't fun to go into toxicity. Some more symptoms or early signs of lithium toxicity, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, drowsiness, muscle weakness, tremor, lack of coordination, blurred vision, or ringing in your ears can happen. If that is the case, call your doctor and try to go to the hospital. Your doctor should give you lithium level blood tests to make sure this doesn't happen. Good luck on it! I hated the stuff and ended up going off it since my doctor wasn't very good at keeping track of my levels. Answered by Jarvis Solak 1 month ago.

this is something to talk alongside with your surgeon. I took lithium for a number of years and gained alot of weight. I lived with the area effects till i chanced on a extra effectual surgeon. There are different drugs that paintings ok for bi-polar. I now take lamictal and have not the load benefit and experience lots extra effectual than I even have in years Answered by Hee Lundman 1 month ago.

Does everyone have lithium carbonate in their blood?
But Rebecca, you don't technically NEED it because there is no LACK of it in your blood, do you??? Asked by Maryann Nasif 1 month ago.

Lithium is a natural element that is found in soil, water, food. But the level in someones blood is so low that is would not be detected by a blood test. So no, you only get your lithium levels checked if take lithium. You get maybe 1 or 2 mgs a day of lithium from your food and water....... that would not even register on a test. I take 1200 mgs a day (I am Bipolar) and I know people who take 1800 mgs a day. See the difference. You only need to get your levels checked to make sure you are not close to the toxic range..... if people can take 1800 mgs a day and not go toxic you can see why it would be impossible to even approach toxicity getting only 2mgs a day.. EDIT - Normal people do not need it but I am Bipolar and Lithium stabilizes my moods. the tiny amount of Lithium you get from food and water is not enough to stabilize the mood of someone with Bipolar, we need huge doses of it to change our brain chemistry and stabilize our mood.

Lithium is a second-period element, which tend to have different properties than other elements in the same group, both as element as well as in compounds. This is a reason why lithium salts tend to have quite different properties as other alkali metal salts. Lithium carbonate has a high lattice energy due to the small ion size of lithium, and this also decreases its solubility. Of the alkali and alkaline earth metals, all chlorides and nitrates are soluble. All the oxides react with water, except beryllium oxide. Beryllium and magnesium hydroxide are insoluble, calcium and strontium hydroxide are sparingly soluble, and all the alkali metal hydroxides and barium hydroxide are soluble. The alkali metal carbonates are soluble, lithium carbonate is sparingly soluble, and the alkaline earth carbonates are insoluble. All the sulfates are soluble except calcium, strontium and barium sulfate. Answered by Aimee Havlin 1 month ago.


Would anything happen if you tried to smoke Li2Co3 (Lithium Carbonate)?
To answerer #1 - If that were true, I don't think they'd be able to deal it out as a medication for manic depression. Asked by Nichole Peltier 1 month ago.

Lithium carbonate , as you know, is used as a medication for certain psychiatric disorders.. Lithium ions interfere with chemical reactions that relay and amplify messages carried to the cells of the brain. So for medical use, it is necessary to ingest and absorb the lithium ion. As the carbonate, this is a convenient and acceptable route to administer the cation. Now if you wished to smoke this substance, all that I can see happening, purely from a chemical point of view, would be the decomnposition of Li2CO3 as follows Li2CO3 → Li2O + CO2 You would presumably inhale the CO2, and the Li2O being a nonvolatile solid would remain behind. I doubt if you would get any appreciable concentration of the Li cation into your system. The Li2O would form a very basic LiOH with the moisture in the mouth, so should any actually get into your system I would expect some uncomfortable throat irritation. However, I have no specialised knowledge of smoking, even conventional products such as tobacco, and certainly none on such exotic substances as Li2CO3, But from a chemical aspect, I think the above represents what would happen. Answered by Lena Tarduno 1 month ago.

lithium carbonate is so unstable that it has to be kept in an atmosphere of carbondioxide to prevent its spontaneous decomposition.(because of the high polarising power of lithium.so there is no question of smoking lithium carbonate as if you tried to do so you will get only lithium oxide to smoke. Answered by Genna Gadberry 1 month ago.


Lithium Carbonate......?
I take it for bipolar and I was wondering what would happen if I smoked it? Would it work the way its supposed to? Would it hurt my lungs or would it be like smoking any other substance? Asked by Kina Cotilla 1 month ago.

You would not be able to smoke lithium carbonate. In order for a substance to be smoked it needs to be vaporized so it can enter the lungs as a gas. To just even make lithium carbonate melt you need to heat it 1,333.4 degrees Fahrenheit. No lighter can create that much heat let alone be able to vaporize it. You would have to use a propane torch. DON'T EVEN TRY THAT. Something that hot being deliberately inhaled into your lungs could instantly kill you. Answered by Theo Shillings 1 month ago.
