Lithium Chlorate

Lithium chlorate is extremely soluble and hygroscopic and is not used in pyrotechnics for that reason.
It can be made by electrolysis using LiCl.
Because of the small size of the Li atom it appears that Li Perchlorate forms very easily from LiCl.
Bear this in mind if you are trying to make Li Chlorate. See Li Perchlorate section.

There is solubility info. in the article below available in the further reading section.

From experiments conducted by Hashashan it would appear that Li (Per)Chlorate cells are erosive to Lead Dioxide. It also appears that Li is erosive to Tin Oxide Anodes.
