Description of key information

All of the substances in the lithium salts of monocarboxylic acids C14-C22 category have similar melting points, in the range of 166 to 231°C. All category members slowly decompose after melting.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The data on lithium myristate, lithium 12 -hydroxystearate and lithium behenate are taken from proprietary study reports (Harlan 2012, Harlan 2013). This is supported by data on lithium myristate, lithium palmitate and lithium stearate from Shoeb (1999) and on lithium stearate from US EPA (2011) and Lide (2009).
