Lithium (Li) is a light alkali chemical element. Lithium numbers 3 on the periodic table. (ST reference: Star Fleet Medical Reference Manual)

During the 23rd century, a special crystalline form of lithium was used in the lithium crystal circuits in power systems aboard Federation starships. Lithium cracking stations were established on several planets that would "crack" the lithium for use aboard starships. (TOS episodes: "Where No Man Has Gone Before", "Mudd's Women")

Lithium hydroxide is an efficient and lightweight purifier of air. In confined areas, such as aboard spacecraft and submarines, the concentration of carbon dioxide can approach unhealthy or toxic levels. Lithium hydroxide absorbs the carbon dioxide from the air by reacting with it to form lithium carbonate. Any alkali hydroxide will absorb CO2, but lithium hydroxide is preferred, especially in spacecraft applications, because of the low formula weight conferred by the lithium. Even better materials for this purpose include lithium peroxide (Li2O2) that, in presence of moisture, not only absorb carbon dioxide to form lithium carbonate, but also release oxygen. E.g. 2 Li2O2 + 2 CO2 --> 2 Li2CO3 + O2.
