Abstract : In this work reaction of lithium with titanium in range of temperatures of 300-1300 degrees in presence of small quantities of nitrogen and oxygen was investigated. In the literature has information about limited durability of titanium in liquid lithium and about temperature dependence of solubility of lithium in zirconium and also about formation of solid compounds on surface if zirconium in presence of nitrogen. Diagram of system titanium - lithium is not constructed. Is known the existence of the ternary compounds Lithium Titanium Oxide and Lithium Titanium Nitride, and also the similar compounds with arsenic and phosphorus. By us as initial materials they were undertaken: metallic lithium by purity/finish 99.88% and iodide titanium by purity/finish 99.8%. For explaining character of reaction of lithium with iodide titanium procedure, similar to that described in works for construction of constitution diagrams of systems Ti-Mg and Ti-Ca was used.
