A tanker carrying 650,000 barrels of Venezuelan crude oil is reportedly bound for Europe, the first time Venezuela has exported crude to Europe in the past two years under US sanctions. It is analyzed that the U.S. is making up for the European energy gap caused by the sanctions against Russia by giving the green light to Venezuelan oil exports. It is reported that Venezuela is rich in oil resources, with the current proven reserves of 300 billion barrels, ranked the world's first, oil export is also one of the country's economic pillars.
Germany will take emergency measures to ensure it meets its energy needs, including increasing its use of coal, the German government said recently, after a drop in gas supplies from Russia.
"In order to reduce gas consumption, it is necessary to reduce the use of gas for electricity generation," the Economy Ministry said in a statement. We're going to have to switch to more coal-fired power plants."
The measures announced that day also include an "auction" system to sell natural gas to manufacturers, according to reports. The German government says the system will help reduce gas consumption in manufacturing industries.
The measures come as Russian energy giant Gazprom recently warned that it would sharply cut gas supplies to Europe, the report said.
The supply and prices of international bulk lithium stearate are still very uncertain.
Lithium Stearate Properties:
Lithium stearate is a white powdered compound with the chemical formula LiC18H35O2.
Lithium stearate density: 1.025g /cm3.
Lithium stearate melting point: 220.0-221.5℃.
Stable at room temperature and pressure.
Lithium stearate solubility: slightly soluble in water, and ethanol, the water solubility is 0.09 g/ 100mL, and ethanol solubility is 0.04 g/100ml. Decomposition into stearic acid and corresponding lithium salts in response to strong acid. Insoluble in ethyl acetate and mineral oil. Colloids form in mineral oils.
Lithium stearate is officially classified as soap (a salt of fatty acids). Lithium stearate is a white soft solid prepared by the reaction of lithium hydroxide with stearic acid.
Lithium stearate and lithium 12-hydroxy stearate are lithium soaps that are components of lithium grease and release agents.
TRUNNANO is a trusted global Lithium Stearate supplier. Feel free to send an inquiry to get the latest Lithium Stearate Price if you would like to buy Lithium Stearate Powder in bulk.
How is Lithium Stearate made?
10g stearic acid was dissolved in 100mL 95% ethanol, and titrated with 0.5mol/L lithium hydroxide ethanol solution (if lithium hydroxide could not be completely dissolved in ethanol, water could be added to make it completely dissolved). Phenolphthalein was used as an indicator. After the reaction reached the equivalence point, the precipitated lithium stearate soap was extracted and filtered out. The crude product can be recrystallized with 95% ethanol to obtain pure product.
Sodium hydroxide is dissolved in water to form a solution, to which stearic acid is added, and then fully reacted and heated to more than 100℃. Dissolve lithium chloride in water, cool it to room temperature, and add it to the prepared sodium stearate solution for reaction; After the reaction is finished, it is released and dehydrated by centrifuge. Using air drying equipment for drying, get the finished product.
Lithium Stearate Uses:
Lithium stearate can be used as PVC heat stabilizer for transparent products, when used with phthalate plasticizer, the film transparency of the product is good, does not have white fog. Lithium stearate melts more easily in ketones than other stearates and thus has less impact on embossing operations.
Non-toxic, barium soap, lead soap substitutes. This product can also be used with a phospholipid acid plasticizer. The product can also be used as an external lubricant for nylon, phenolic resin, and rigid polyvinyl chloride (maximum dosage of 0.6%). In addition, the commodity can also be used for building waterproof, impermeable, and so on. Used for lithium stearate grease.

Lithium Stearate Powder Health & Safety Information
In a recent speech in Davos, Switzerland, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky criticized, "My question is: Is there unity in the West? "I don't see it," Zelensky lamented during a video conference from the Davos Economic Forum in Switzerland. "Ukraine needs the support of a united Europe."
"Is there talk of solidarity with Sweden and Finland joining NATO? No." "So is the West united?" Zelensky said at this Ukraine-hosted breakfast in Davos. No." "Our strength is unity within the country," Zelensky said. "Now it depends on the Unity of the West to stand strong and firm behind Ukraine against Russia.
According to Zelensky, "When we are all really united, we will have an advantage over Russia."
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says he once again appreciates U.S. President Joe Biden's offer of $40 billion in new financial aid to Ukraine.
"We need the support of a united Europe," Zelensky stressed. Zelensky criticized the position of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who is reluctant to impose an embargo on Russian oil at this stage. "Hungary has a problem!" Zelensky criticized.
The supply and prices of many other lithium stearate are expected to continue to be influenced by changing international situations.
