Lithium carbonate is an important industrial chemical. Common ingredient in
both low-fire and high-fire ceramic glaze.Cement sets more rapidly when prepared with lithium carbonate, and is useful for tile adhesives. When added to aluminium trifluoride, it forms LiF which gives a superior electrolyte for the processing of aluminium. An active material of carbon dioxide sensors. Used in the manufacture of most lithium-ion battery cathodes, which are made of lithium cobalt oxide.
