Re: lithium bromide solubility ?
Hi Joseph, Ryuji,
I've enclosed two pages from the book I've mentioned (Is this allowed by the list-rules? Otherwise, in the future, I'll send them to private emailadresses...).
If you chcek LiBr (page 4-69, first find Lithium in the first colum under name, then look for bromide, or look under synonyms and formulae in the second colum directly under LiBr), you'll see a solubility of 145 grams per 100 cc of cold water. On the second page, in the same way, you will find that LiI has a solubility of 165 grams per 100 cc of water. So, LiI dissolves better in water than LiBr. But both have excellent dissolving-characteristics. Under 'other solvents', last colum, you'll find no number, but both mention eth, short for ethanol/alcohol (usually the 95% form, most commonly..) so both dissolve in ethanol. I guess the solvability of LiI in ethanol will be better than LiBr in ethanol....
I can't find exact numbers for the solubility of these substances in ethanol, this is all I got. Hope it is good enough for you!

I understand your point, but I thought to add a common example where
