Lithium chloride can be made by igniting lithium and chlorine, but it is difficult because the reaction is violent. This makes the anhydrous (without water attached) form. Another way is mixing lithium oxide, lithium hydroxide, or lithium carbonate with hydrochloric acid. This makes the hydrate (water attached to the molecule). The hydrous form can be dried to the anhydrous form by heating it with hydrogen chloride gas. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Conductivity and dielectric relaxation in concentrated aqueous lithium chloride solutions. AU - Moynihan, C. T.. AU - Bressel, R. D.. AU - Angell, Charles. PY - 1971. Y1 - 1971. N2 - This paper describes a study of the recently recognized phenomenon of conductivity relaxation in liquid electrolytes as it is observed in the system LiCl+water. Advantage has been taken of the supercooling ability of 6-20m solutions in this system to reduce solution temperatures to the vicinity of -100°C and thereby to increase the relaxation time characteristic of the conductance process sufficiently to permit its study with conventional ac conductance bridges operating in the frequency range 0.2-2 000 kHz. Extensive data are presented for four solutions in the concentration range 8.3-11.9m. When the frequency-dependent conduclance and capacitance data are analyzed in the dielectric modulus notation developed by Macedo, Bose, and IJtovitz, mean relaxation times for conductance are obtained which ...

Plant CWs are highly dynamic and contain chemically active compounds secreted by the cells, which are essentially polysaccharides and proteins, the latter comprising approximately 10% of the CW mass (Jamet et al., 2008). These proteins, which are difficult to isolate from these complex matrixes, require specific extraction methods (Teixeira et al., 2006; Zhu et al., 2006; Almeida et al., 2007, 2008; Kong et al., 2010), due to their low abundance. Differential extraction enriches the extract, allows access to the CW LAP, and facilitates the comparison of the expression profiles under different stress conditions (Watson and Summer, 2006; Negri et al., 2008). Protein extraction from CWs can be achieved by methods that may involve or not cell disruption. For each procedure there are advantages and disadvantages, especially concerning contamination and experimental procedures. Methods commonly used involve calcium chloride and lithium chloride solutions (Feiz et al., 2006; Kong et al., 2010). Calcium ...

When consumption of a novel tasting substance is followed by administration of a chemical agent that produces physiological changes indicative of malaise, animals will reduce their consumption of the substance during subsequent encounters. This learned response is traditionally referred to as a conditioned taste aversion (CTA). Studies have shown that the hormone estradiol is capable of producing this learned gustatory aversion. In addition, estradiol produces reductions in food intake and body weight, a phenomenon that is referred to as its anorectic effects. As a consequence of this anorectic effect, we question whether estradiol truly can induce CTA learning. Therefore, one of the purposes of the experiments presented in this dissertation was to test the dissociability of estradiol CTA and estradiol anorexia. The second purpose of this thesis was to examine the neural basis of estradiol CTA and estradiol anorexia. Four approaches were adopted to test the ability of estradiol to condition ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Forgetting, preconditioning CS familiarization and taste aversion learning. T2 - An animal experiment with implications for alcoholism treatment. AU - Elkins, Ralph L.. AU - Hobbs, Steve H. PY - 1979/1/1. Y1 - 1979/1/1. N2 - The rapid taste aversion acquisition, which typically occurs in many species when ingestion of a novel flavor precedes gastrointestinal distress, is retarded by preconditioning familiarity with the CS flavor. This CS familiarity effect (CSFE) might contraindicate taste aversion approaches to alcoholism treatment since alcoholics are quite accustomed to the tastes of alcoholic beverages. However, many alcoholics do develop strong nausea-induced alcohol aversions under appropriate conditioning parameters. Additionally, the CSFE is attenuated in rats by repeated conditioning trials including discrimination training. The present animal experiment was conducted to determine if the CSFE could additionally be weakened by process of forgetting, i.e. by ...
Experimental animals. Experiments in adult rats and P21 (with P1 defined as the day of birth) rats were carried out at the Mario Negri Institute. Adult (250-300 g) and P21 male Sprague-Dawley rats (Charles River Laboratories) were used. Male pups from 4 independent litters were used and were housed with their dams at constant temperature (23°C) and relative humidity (60%) with a fixed 12-hour light/12-hour dark cycle and free access to food and water until weaning at P21. Older animals were housed 1 per cage.. Pilocarpine-induced SE in P21 rats. Lithium chloride (3 meq/kg; Merck Sharp & Dohme) was injected i.p. in P20 rats, 18 hours before the s.c. injection of pilocarpine (60 mg/kg; Sigma-Aldrich) (36-38). Controls were age-matched rats injected with lithium chloride and with an equivalent volume of vehicle (PBS, pH 7.4) instead of pilocarpine. All animals received an injection of 10% sucrose in PBS 2 hours after the onset of SE to improve hydration. SE was not interrupted by any drug ...

The liquid bait also may include an effective amount of an insect control active ingredient selected from the group consisting of insecticides, insect growth regulators, chitin inhibitors, insect pathogens, insect-controlling materials derived from insect pathogens, and combinations thereof.
Animals. Wistar rats (Simonsen Labs, Gilroy, CA) of either sex were used in this study. The Committees on Animal Research at the University of California, Los Angeles, and the Sepulveda Veterans Affairs Medical Center approved all protocols. Rat pups of 2, 3, and 4 weeks of age and mature rats (12-16 weeks of age) were given 3 mEq/kg lithium chloride (Sigma, St. Louis, MO) intraperitoneally on the day before the induction of SE. Seizures progressing to SE were induced by subcutaneous injection of 60 mg/kg pilocarpine hydrochloride (Sigma). Control animals were given an equal volume of saline subcutaneously. Rats were observed for behavioral evidence of seizures. Only rats displaying behavioral manifestations of seizures described previously (Jope et al., 1986; Hirsch et al., 1992) were used. The selected animals underwent blood gas monitoring 5 min before the administration of PC, and 2, 4, and 6 hr after. We have previously recorded electrographic seizures from both the hippocampus and parietal ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Brainstem lesions and gustatory function. T2 - II. The role of the nucleus of the solitary tract in Na+ appetite, conditioned taste aversion, and conditioned odor aversion in rats. AU - Grigson-Kennedy, Patricia "Sue". AU - Shimura, Tsuyoshi. AU - Norgren, Ralph. PY - 1997/2/1. Y1 - 1997/2/1. N2 - Rats with lesions of the nucleus of the solitary tract (NST) that demonstrated flat concentration-response functions for NaCl and sucrose (T. Shimura, P. S. Grigson, and R. Norgren, 1997) expressed a significant (albeit reduced) salt appetite following sodium depletion, and a normal conditioned taste aversion (CTA) for alanine when paired with lithium chloride-induced toxicosis. Rats with lesions of the NST also could acquire a conditioned odor aversion, but the CTA to alanine was not mediated by odor cues because other rats with NST lesions also demonstrated normal CTA learning even when made anosmic with zinc sulfate. Together, the data suggest that the rostral NST is essential for ...

Although the terms "taste avoidance" and "taste aversion" are often used interchangeably, studies with rats indicate they are not necessarily synonymous. "Aversion" is defined as "a strong dislike or disinclination"[4] and "avoidance" is defined as "stopping oneself from doing".[5] The difference is that in avoidance, the organism is controlling its behavioural responses. Taste avoidance and taste aversion can at times go hand in hand, but they cannot be looked at or be defined the same way.. Studies on rats to determine how they react to different tasting liquids and injections indicate this difference. Scientists measured the facial and somatic reactions of rats after exposure to a flavored solution (sucrose or salt) which do not induce abnormal feelings. However, immediately after the rat ingests the solution, the rat is injected with a drug that induces nausea. The rat subsequently expresses a disgust reaction towards the solution, seen by mouth gaping. This is a Pavlovian conditioned ...
Lithium, one of the most effective drugs for the treatment of bipolar (manic-depressive) disorder, also has dramatic effects on morphogenesis in the early development of numerous organisms. How lithium exerts these diverse effects is unclear, but the favored hypothesis is that lithium acts through inhibition of inositol monophosphatase (IMPase). We show here that complete inhibition of IMPase has no effect on the morphogenesis of Xenopus embryos and present a different hypothesis to explain the broad action of lithium. Our results suggest that lithium acts through inhibition of glycogen synthase kinase-3 beta (GSK-3 beta), which regulates cell fate determination in diverse organisms including Dictyostelium, Drosophila, and Xenopus. Lithium potently inhibits GSK-3 beta activity (Ki = 2 mM), but is not a general inhibitor of other protein kinases. In support of this hypothesis, lithium treatment phenocopies loss of GSK-3 beta function in Xenopus and Dictyostelium. These observations help explain ...
For more than 60 years, the mood stabilizer lithium has been used alone or in combination for the treatment of bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, depression and other mental illnesses. Despite this long history, the molecular mechanisms trough which lithium regulates behavior are still poorly understood. Among several targets, lithium has been shown to directly inhibit glycogen synthase kinase 3 alpha and beta (GSK3α and GSK3β). However in vivo, lithium also inhibits GSK3 by regulating the activity of other mechanisms like the formation of a signaling complex comprised of beta-arrestin 2 and Akt. Here, we provide an overview of in vivo evidence supporting a role for inhibition of GSK3 in some behavioral effects of lithium. We also explore how regulation of GSK3 by lithium within a signaling network involving several molecular targets and cell surface receptors (e.g. G protein coupled receptors and receptor tyrosine kinases) may provide cues to its relative pharmacological selectivity and its effects on

The intrinsic anion oxidation potential (Delta E-v) and lithium ion pair dissociation energy (Delta E-d) are two important properties for predicting the potential use of new lithium salts for battery electrolytes. In this work several cyano substituted fluoroalkylated benzimidazole and imidazole anions have been investigated computationally to obtain Delta E-v and Delta E-d. Varying the number and position of cyano substituents results in large effects on the electrochemical stability of the anion and on the possible lithium ion pair configurations. The lengthening of the fluoroalkyl group introduces several new stable ion pair configurations and a small increase in anion oxidation stability. The most promising fluoroalkylated anions in the present work are the 4,5,6,7-tetracyano-2-fluoroalkylated benzimidazolides (TTB and PTB), with oxidation potentials suitable for high voltage Li-ion battery applications (|4.2 V) and much improved Delta E-d compared to PF6- -a benchmark for commercially available
Degradation mechanisms such as lithium plating, growth of the passivated surface film layer on the electrodes and loss of both recyclable lithium ions and electrode material adversely affect the longevity of the lithium ion battery. The anode electrode is very vulnerable to these degradation mechanisms. In this paper, the most common aging mechanisms occurring at the anode during the operation of the lithium battery, as well as some approaches for minimizing the degradation are reviewed.
Graphitic carbon is currently considered the state-of-the-art material for the negative electrode in lithium ion cells, mainly due to its high reversibility and low operating potential. However, carbon anodes exhibit mediocre charge/ discharge rate performance, which contributes to severe transport-induced surface structural damage upon prolonged cycling and limits the lifetime of the cell. Lithium bulk diffusion in graphitic carbon is not yet completely understood, partly due to the complexity of measuring bulk transport properties in finite-sized nonisotropic particles. To solve this problem for graphite, we use the DevanathanStachurski electrochemical methodology combined with ab initio computations to deconvolute and quantify the mechanism of lithium ion diffusion in highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG). The results reveal inherent high lithium ion diffusivity in the direction parallel to the graphene plane (∼10-7 -10-6 cm2 s -1 ), as compared to sluggish lithium ion transport along ...
Lithium salts have been used for the treatment of psychiatric disorders for over five decades, mostly as a mood-stabilizing drug. Recent evidence points to the inhibition of the enzyme glycogen synthase kinase-3beta (GSK3) as one of its mechanisms of action. The overactivity of this enzyme has been implicated in the pathogenesis of Alzheimers disease (AD), given its involvement in mechanisms related to the hyperphosphorylation of Tau protein and the production of beta-amyloid peptide. These are key events leading respectively to the formation of neurofibrillary tangles and senile plaques, which are the neuropathological hallmarks of the disease. Several in vitro and animal studies have shown that the inhibition of GSK3 by lithium and other agents attenuates these pathological processes, reinforcing the notion that GSK3 is a likely target for future disease-modifying therapies for AD. Indeed, a recent study published by our group showed that chronic lithium use is associated with a decrement in ...

Think young into your 90s with this anti-aging secret for your brain. The biggest problem with lithium treatment is peoples perception of it. Since its most well known use is for bi-polar disorder, lithium sometimes encounters the same stigma as mental illness itself.. Ive been taking a lithium supplement every day for several years. When I tell people about it, they sometimes get funny looks on their faces and start eyeing the corners of the room for straight jackets. These reactions dont surprise me, since, as I said, lithium is usually associated with mental illness. But Ive never suffered from a mental disorder (although certain mainstream medical doctors and possibly a federal agency or two might disagree). Treating manic-depressive (bi-polar) illness is lithiums most widely known use-but it isnt an anti-psychotic drug, as many people believe. In fact, lithium isnt a drug at all. Its actually a mineral-part of the same family of minerals that includes sodium and potassium.. You ...
