  • Patent number: 10434497
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method of producing inorganic sorbents for extracting lithium from lithium-containing natural and technological brines. The method is carried by contacting a soluble niobate (V) with an acid in the presence of at least one zirconium (IV) salt to obtain a precipitate of a mixed hydrated niobium and zirconium oxide. Subsequent steps include granulating the precipitate by freezing, converting the product of granulation into a Li-form, calcining the Li-form, and converting the obtained granulated mixed lithium, niobium, and zirconium oxide into an ion-exchanger in an H-form. In the obtained H-form the inorganic sorbent is ready for use in lithium extraction processes.
