It is used in the preparation of cobalt catalysts, and cobal metal powder for powder-metallurgical applications.
It is made in process of recycling lithium-ion bateries, where the cobalt is obtained from cathode material
(LiCoO2) by leaching with sulfuric acid and then precipitated with ammonium oxalate.
