Chemically Dissolve Strontium

  1. Apr 22, 2016 #1
    How do you chemically dissolve Strontium in it's solid form? (It's an alkaline metal)

    I need it in some kind of liquid form or flakes (I was thinking of just shaving it down but that might not be as efficient nor very safe) so I can then put it into another solution of graphene conductive dispersion.

    Graphene conductive dispersion: graphite, n-Butyl Acetate, Ethyl Cellulose - https://graphene-supermarket.com/Conductive-Graphene-Dispersion-100.html
    I'm planning on mixing it with an electrolyte such as KOH or NaOH

    However, how do you get Strontium metal prepared so it will dissolve in the solution?

    Without reaction? You don't.
