Gallium
« on: January 13, 2020, 11:01:25 PM »
I recently bought 50g of gallium and after melting the first time it became dirty and gritty. Is this normal? I tried adding a pic but it wont work for some reason.

It will be oxidized like aluminium. You should melt it under nitrogen or argon gas athmosphere.
