    Under standard conditions, lithium is the lightest metal and the least
dense solid element. Because of its specific heat capacity, the highest of all
solids, lithium is often used in heat transfer applications. It is an
important ingredient in cathode materials, because of its high electrochemical
potential, light weight and high current density used in rechargeable and
single-use batteries especially for cellphones and electric or hybrid
automobiles. Large quantities of lithium are also used in the manufacture of
organolithium reagents, especially n-butyllithium which has many uses in fine
chemical and polymer synthesis. All the foregoing is subject to regulatory
