Abstract:Chlorination roasting followed by water leaching process was used to extract lithium from lepidolite. The microstructure of the lepidolite and roasted materials were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD). Various parameters including chlorination roasting temperature, time, type and amount of chlorinating agents were optimized. The conditional experiments indicate that the best mass ratio of lepidolite to NaCl to CaCl2 is 1:0.6:0.4 during the roasting process. The extraction of lithium reaches peak value of 92.86% at 880 °C, potassium, rubidium, and cesium 88.49%, 93.60% and 93.01%, respectively. The XRD result indicates that the major phases of the product after roasting lepidolite with mixture of chlorinating agents (CaCl2 and NaCl) are SiO2, CaF2, KCl, CaSiO3, CaAl2Si2O8, NaCl and NaAlSi3O8.
