General description

Lithium perchlorate (LiClO4) is a neutral salt with high solubility. LiClO4 finds use as an electrolyte for lithium-sulfur batteries; it has been shown to give rise to the effective inhibition of the chemical polysulfide shuttle which subsequently boosts the columbic efficiency through the charge process.
Lithium percholate is a class of electrolytic materials that can be used in the fabrication of lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries consist of anode, cathode, and electrolyte with a charge-discharge cycle. These materials enable the formation of greener and sustainable batteries for electrical energy storage.
We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for energy efficiency. Find details here.

Application

LiClO4 can be used as an additive in the preparation of high-performance polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) fibrous membranes. It can also be doped with chitosan and starch for the fabrication of supercapacitors.
LiClO4 is used as an electrolyte salt for lithium-sulfur batteries. LiClO4 acts as a catalyst in the solvent free thiolysis of epoxides. It has been used in various organic transformations.
