Aluminum is a chemical element. Its chemical symbol is al, and its atomic number is 13. Aluminum is the most abundant metal element in the crust, ranking third only to oxygen and silicon. Among the metal varieties, it is the second largest type of metal, second only to steel. At the end of the 19th century, aluminum came to the fore and became a competitive metal in engineering applications. The development of three important industries, aviation, construction and automobile, requires that the material properties have the unique properties of aluminum and its alloys, which is greatly conducive to the production and application of this new metal aluminum. Aluminum is widely used.

Aluminum reacts with water

Experiment description

According to the reducibility of aluminum, it can be inferred that aluminum can react with water, but experiments have found that there is almost no reaction between aluminum and boiling water, so many people believe that aluminum does not react with water. In fact, aluminum can react significantly with water under heating conditions, but a dense oxide film is formed with oxygen in the water at the beginning of the reaction to prevent the reaction from proceeding further.

Experimental improvement

After the dense oxide film on the surface of aluminum is removed with sodium hydroxide solution, the stripped aluminum reacts with mercury nitrate solution, and the replaced mercury elementary substance reacts with aluminum elementary substance to form aluminum amalgam, so that some lattice aluminum atoms are occupied by mercury atoms, so that dense oxides cannot be generated, and the reaction between aluminum and water can be further carried out
