Description of key information

In accordance with column 2 of Reach Regulation 1907/2006, Annex VII, section 7.13, the chemical structure of lithium does not contain chemical groups which may lead to the conclusion that oxidising properties should be expected (Ref.: R.7a: Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, EU-Document (2012)). Moreover, lithium is known as a good reducing agent and tends to be oxidized / to form hydroxides (e.g. due to moisture in the air).
