The lightness and electrochemical potential of
lithium make it a preferred element in electricity storage applications in
batteries. Lithium is a must in the industrial sector, and to the great
detriment of nickel/hydride batteries has become essential in the
development of electric cars. It is also
used in aeronautics for the production of high-performance alloys where Aluminium
(Al) and Lithium bases are regularly used.
