The objectives of this work were to attempt to elucidate the initial hydrolysis reaction mechanism when LiH is exposed to water vapour (or air) under specific environmental conditions. Specifically, the work sought to determine whether the initial hydrolysis reaction product was Li₂0 or LiOH, which is an important question that must be answered if an accurate predictive model of LiH hydrolysis is to be developed, which was the underlying driver for this work.
