Summary

Several lithium compounds as precursors Jor lithia in 20L geis made from tetramethyl or tetraethyl silanes result in reliable production of monolithic gels; many others fail. Control of pH, water ratio R, solvent type and concentration, and temperature is needed to obtain crack-free samples.
