Pulling my brains out here. And I simply cannot get it to work. Picture the following:

You have a fusion reactor and your only input is a bonded H2O:


O-H
.|
H

I can split it to Hydrogen and Oxygen, of course. That much is simple. And I can also manage to fusion it in a way that most or all output is Helium.

But I want want step further: How can I get Lithium out of it? If anyone has a design idea, please let me know!
