Eutectic alloy with Strontium & Lithium?

  1. Mar 20, 2016 #1
    Hello! I am looking for a eutectic (liquid) alloy that includes Strontium and Lithium at or near room temperature. Does anyone have an idea of where to look for it? Thanks!

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    Do you have any reason to believe that such an alloy exists?

    If one is looking for a binary phase diagram, one would be able to find Sr-Li phase diagram through ASM International in their alloy phase diagram database.

    I recommend performing one's own test with regard to phases in the temperature and pressure ranges of interest, since I have found conflicting maps in other systems.

    Thanks for the inputs. We were looking for an eutectic alloy alternative to Mercury and Galinstan at room temperature and obviously were misled into thinking the Lithium-Strontium system had such properties.
