The US Commerce Secretary has announced that the US will temporarily lift tariffs imposed on Ukraine during the Trump administration to help Ukraine recover its economy and continue to show support for the Russia-Ukraine situation. "For steel mills to remain an economic lifeline for the Ukrainian people, they must be able to export steel," the Commerce Department said in a statement.
The Biden administration will announce the lifting of steel tariffs on Ukraine for one year. Ukraine is a fairly small supplier of U.S. steel, shipping about 218,000 tons in 2019, ranking it 12th among foreign suppliers to the United States, the report said. The U.S. Commerce Department noted that the steel industry is uniquely important to Ukraine's economic strength, with one in 13 people employed in the steel industry.
Affected by the ever-changing international situation, the supply and prices of international bulk lithium stearate are still very uncertain.
Lithium Stearate Properties:
Lithium stearate is a white powdered compound with the chemical formula LiC18H35O2.
Lithium stearate density: 1.025g /cm3.
Lithium stearate melting point: 220.0-221.5℃.
Stable at room temperature and pressure.
Lithium stearate solubility: slightly soluble in water, and ethanol, the water solubility is 0.09 g/ 100mL, and ethanol solubility is 0.04 g/100ml. Decomposition into stearic acid and corresponding lithium salts in response to strong acid. Insoluble in ethyl acetate and mineral oil. Colloids form in mineral oils.
Lithium stearate is officially classified as soap (a salt of fatty acids). Lithium stearate is a white soft solid prepared by the reaction of lithium hydroxide with stearic acid.
Lithium stearate and lithium 12-hydroxy stearate are lithium soaps that are components of lithium grease and release agents.

How is Lithium Stearate made?
10g stearic acid was dissolved in 100mL 95% ethanol, and titrated with 0.5mol/L lithium hydroxide ethanol solution (if lithium hydroxide could not be completely dissolved in ethanol, water could be added to make it completely dissolved). Phenolphthalein was used as an indicator. After the reaction reached the equivalence point, the precipitated lithium stearate soap was extracted and filtered out. The crude product can be recrystallized with 95% ethanol to obtain pure product.
Sodium hydroxide is dissolved in water to form a solution, to which stearic acid is added, and then fully reacted and heated to more than 100℃. Dissolve lithium chloride in water, cool it to room temperature, and add it to the prepared sodium stearate solution for reaction; After the reaction is finished, it is released and dehydrated by centrifuge. Using air drying equipment for drying, get the finished product.
Lithium Stearate Uses:
Lithium stearate can be used as PVC heat stabilizer for transparent products, when used with phthalate plasticizer, the film transparency of the product is good, does not have white fog. Lithium stearate melts more easily in ketones than other stearates and thus has less impact on embossing operations.
Non-toxic, barium soap, lead soap substitutes. This product can also be used with a phospholipid acid plasticizer. The product can also be used as an external lubricant for nylon, phenolic resin, and rigid polyvinyl chloride (maximum dosage of 0.6%). In addition, the commodity can also be used for building waterproof, impermeable, and so on. Used for lithium stearate grease.

Lithium Stearate Powder Health & Safety Information
Researchers at the University of Warwick in the UK have developed a lithium battery technology innovation. Adding graphene beams doubles battery life. By strengthening the structure of the anode with graphene beams, they have found an effective way to replace the graphite in the anode with silicon. Thereby increasing the capacity of the lithium-ion battery and more than doubling the lifespan.
