Lithium Carbide (Li 2 C 2 ) easily ignites at room temperature in a fluorine or chlorine atmosphere with the formation of lithium fluoride or chloride. With bromine and iodine reaction takes place on heating . In an atmosphere of oxygen, sulfur, or selenium vapor it burns at 700–800°C; with phosphorus it forms the phosphide, which is decomposed by water with evolution of phosphine.
