Gallium

 

 
CAS No: 7440-55-3                       
EINECS No: 231-163-8                   
Formula: Ga
 
Liquid gallium wets porcelain and glass surfaces, it forms a bright, highly reflective surface when coated on glass. It can be used in production of brilliant mirrors. Gallium easily alloys with most metals, so it is used to form low-melting alloys. Analog integrated circuits are the most common application for gallium.
 
Gallium has semiconductor properties, this can convert electricity to light and is used in light emitting diodes (LEDs) for electronic display and watches. Because gallium is a liquid at room temperature and is considered to be non-toxic, the medical industry can use gallium as a substitute for mercury in liquid thermometers.
