General description

Lithium amide (LiNH2) is an amide of an alkali metal with lithium atoms having larger positive charges than hydrogen atoms. It is a moisture-sensitive molecule that converts to LiOH and NH3 on reaction with H2O. LiNH2 is majorly used in hydrogen storage applications.

Research and development of solid-state lithium fast-ion conductors is crucial because they can be potentially used as solid electrolytes in all-solid-state batteries, which may solve the safety and energy-density related issues of conventional lithium-ion batteries that use liquid (farmable organic) electrolytes.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
