Lithium is naturally found mostly in aquatic and terrestrial habitats. However, it is not present in very high concentrations.
Lithium is found in ionic form in water. It reacts with water to form lithium hydroxide and hydrogen. Lithium ions move from one electrode to another according to the battery’s charge and discharge properties.
We use high-pressure homogenization to dissolve molecules above 100 microns, such as sulfur, carbon black, and graphene oxide, in water. The pressure value typically used ranges between 800 and 1200 bar.
