Caption: Lithium. Samples of the alkali metal lithium (Li). Lithium has many uses. Some lithium salts are useful as a class of mood stabilizing drugs; lithium and its compounds have commercial applications, including heat-resistant glass and ceramics, high strength-to-weight alloys used in aircraft, and lithium batteries. It also has important links to nuclear physics: the splitting of lithium atoms was the first man-made form of a nuclear reaction, and lithium deuteride serves as the fusion fuel in staged thermonuclear weapons.
