Description and uses: an important, highly water soluble (about 90 g/100 ml at RT) inorganic lithium compound.
Using a flame test it reveals the strong carmine (red) emission line of lithium and the salt is therefore used for red colouring of flares and fireworks.
Thermal decomposition leads to lithium oxide (Li2O, a white solid) being formed.
