Lithium, one of the lightest and most reactive of the metals, is a gummy white metal that forms a black oxide within seconds of being exposed to air. ACI Alloys can supply pure lithium sputter targets packed in argon, although the material is best packed in oil to prevent oxidation.

Lithium alloys, notably aluminum-lithium, may be more stable in air. See Lithium in our "materials made" page for an idea of our capabilities--also try searching alphabetically on each of the element symbols in the material you are looking for.

The MSDS for lithium can be found at
