We are not aware of any forecasting demand model regarding grid applications, perhaps not surprising as the implementation of batteries in this sector depends on national policies and basic decisions—such as centralized vs. localized power—that have not yet been made. 4 Summary In this chapter we have sought to convey how lithium has now become a strategic component for society. The benefits of lithium are rooted in its unique chemical/ physical properties, in terms of density, electropositive character, high reactivity 22 D.

1998; Thornhill 1978; Ward et al. 1994). Several advantages have been found for citrate solution of lithium over the solid carbonate forms: it increases the rate of lithium absorption, avoids prolonged exposure of the small intestine to lithium and subsequently decreases the gastrointestinal side effects of lithium and decreases interindividual variability of lithium disposition (probably through reduced variability of the absorption of solid forms) (Guelen et al. 1992). Because of their better water solubility, chloride and sulphate in immediate-release solid lithium formulations also peak more quickly than do the immediate-release lithium carbonate forms (Altamura et al.

For instance, like lithium, magnesium reacts with oxygen to form magnesium oxide (MgO) and not peroxides as do the lower members of the alkali earth column (calcium peroxide, barium peroxide). Also, like lithium, magnesium reacts with nitrogen gas to form a nitride (Mg3N2). Such seemingly similar behaviour should not come as a total surprise, as both elements have very similar atomic and ionic sizes, but caution has to be exercised here to prevent any over-correlation, since Mg2+ (divalent) polarizability is consequently much higher than that of Li+ (monovalent).
