Molten lithium attacks plastics and rubber.
Molten lithium at 180 deg C attacks vanadium, beryllium, or chromium severely.
Molten lithium attacks carbides and silicates.
Molten lithium attacks the following alloys: cobalt alloys, iron alloys, manganese alloys, nickel alloys.
When nitryl fluoride is passed ... over /lithium warmed to 200 to 300 deg C/ glowing or white incandescence occurs.
... Lithium rapidly attacked silica or glass at 250 deg C.
Passage of the /ethylene/ gas over heated lithium causes latter to incandesce, producing a mixture of lithium hydride and lithium acetylide.
An Accelerating rate calorimetry (ARC) study of the thermal and pressure behavior of actual electric batteries under various atypical conditions showed the major contributions to the exothermic behavior as the reactions between lithium and acetonitrile, lithium and sulfur and the decomp of lithium dithionite. The first reaction can generate enough heat to trigger other exothermic reactions ...
The reaction of lithium and tantalum pentoxide occurs around 410 deg C with consequent temp rise to 595 deg C.
