Magnesium is a shiny, silver or gray colored metal that is light in weight and strong.

USES ď‚ž In flares and pyrotechnics, including incendiary bombs.Is used in alloys used for aircraft, car engine casings, and missile construction .The hydroxide (milk of magnesia), chloride, sulfate (Epsom salts), and the citrate are used in medicine


Pure titanium is a light, silvery-white, hard, lustrous metal. It has excellent strength and corrosion resistance.Titanium’s corrosion rate is so low that after 4000 years in seawater, corrosion would only have penetrated the metal to the thickness of a thin sheet of paper.Titanium is ductile and is malleable when heated.It is insoluble in water, but soluble in concentrated acids. USES  Titanium metal is used as an alloying agent with metals.Alloys of titanium are mainly used in aerospace, aircraft and engines where strong, lightweight, temperature-resistant materials are needed. As a result of its resistance to seawater, (see above) titanium is used for hulls of ships, propeller shafts and other structures exposed to the sea. Titanium is also used in joint replacement implants, such as the ball-and-socket hip joint. 

Lead is a bluish-white lustrous metal. It is very soft, highly malleable, ductile, and a relatively poor conductor of electricity. It is very resistant to corrosion but tarnishes upon exposure to air.

USES Lead pipes bearing the insignia of Roman emperors, used as drains from the baths, are still in service. Alloys include pewter and solder. Tetraethyl lead is still used in some grades of petrol (gasoline) but is being phased out on environmental grounds. Lead is a major constituent of the lead-acid battery used extensively in car batteries. It is used as a coloring element in ceramic glazes, as projectiles, in some candles to threat the wick. It is the traditional base metal for organ pipes, and it is used as electrodes in the process of electrolysis. One if its major uses is in the glass of computer and television screens, where it shields the viewer from radiation. Other uses are in sheeting, cables, solders, lead crystal glassware, ammunitions, bearings and as weight in sport equipment.


Iron is a lustrous, ductile, malleable, silver-gray metal. It is known to exist in four distinct crystalline forms. USES Iron is the most used of all the metals, including 95 % of all the metal tonnage produced worldwide. Thanks to the combination of low cost and high strength it is indispensable. Its applications go from food containers to family cars, from scred rivers to washing machines, from cargo ships to paper staples. Steel is the best known alloy of iron.

Pure silver is nearly white, lustrous, soft, very ductile, malleable, it is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity.. It has the highest electrical conductivity of all

metals, but its greater cost has prevented it from being widely used for electrical purposes. USES ď‚ž

The principal use of silver is as a precious metal and its halide salts, especially silver nitrate, are also widely used in photography. The major outlets are photography, the electrical and electronic industries and for domestic uses as cutlery, jewellery and mirrors. Silver is also employed in the electrical industry: printed circuits are made using silver paints, and computer keyboards use silver electrical contacts. Silver's catalytic properties make it ideal for use as a catalyst in oxidation reactions. Other applications are in dentistry and in highcapacity zinc long-life batteries.

Gold is metallic, with a yellow colour when in a mass, but when finely divided it may be black, ruby, or purple. It is the most malleable and ductile metal.It is a soft metal and is usually alloyed to give it more strength. It is a good conductor of heat and electricity, and is unaffected by air and most reagents. USES Gold is used as buillon and in jewellery, glass and electronics. Jewellery consumes around 75% of all gold produced. Colloidal gold is added to glass to colour it red or purple, and metallic gold is applied as a thin film on the windows of large building to reflect the heat of the Sun's ray. Gold electroplating is used to in the electronic industry to protect their copper components and improve their solderability.

Steel is a general term for iron containing small amounts of carbon, manganese and other elements. Steel has the following properties: -Lustre -Strengh -Alloying -Conductivity -Ductility -Durability -Coating -Malleability USES Steel applications can be divided into five sectors: -Construction -Transport -Energy -Packaging -Appliances and Industry

Aluminum is a soft and lightweight metal. It has a dull silvery appearance, because of a thin layer of oxidation that forms quickly when it is exposed to air. Aluminum is nontoxic (as the metal) nonmagnetic and non-sparking. USES Structural components made from aluminum are vital to the aerospace industry and very important in other areas of transportation and building in which light weight, durability, and strength are needed. Nearly all modern mirrors are made using a thin reflective coating of aluminum on the back surface of a sheet of float glass. Telescope mirrors are also coated with a thin layer of aluminum. Other applications are electrical transmission lines, and packaging (cans, foil, etc.). Because of its high conductivity and relatively low price compared to copper, aluminum. The most recent development in aluminum technology is the production of aluminum foam by adding to the molten metal a compound (a metal hybrid), which releases hydrogen gas. The molten aluminum has to he thickened before this is done and this is achieved by adding aluminum oxide or silicon carbide fibers. The result is a solid foam which is used in traffic tunnels and in space shuttle.

Mercury is the only common metal which is liquid at ordinary temperatures.. It is a heavy, silvery-white liquid metal. It is a rather poor conductor of heat if compared with other metals but it is a fair conductor of electricityare called amalgams.

USES Has many uses. Because of its high density it is used in barometers and manometers. It is extensively used in thermometers, thanks to its high rate of thermal expansion that is fairly constant over a wide temperature range. Its ease in amalgamating with gold is used in the recovery of gold from its ores. Industry uses mercury metal as a liquid electrode in the manufacture of chlorine and sodium hydroxide by electrolysis of brine. Mercury is still used in some electrical gear, such as switches and rectifiers, which need to be reliable, and for industrial catalysis. Much less mercury is now used in consumer batteries and fluorescent lighting, but it has not been entirely eliminated. Mercury compounds have many uses.


ď‚ž Copper

is a reddish metal with a facecentered cubic crystalline structure.. It is malleable, ductile, and an extremely good conductor of both heat and electricity. It is softer than zinc and can be polished to a bright finish. USES Most copper is used for electrical equipment; construction, such as roofing and plumbing ; industrial machinery, such as heat exchangers and alloys .

ď‚ž Uru

is a metal ore in the Marvel Comics . It is unique to the Asgard dimension. It resembles stone but it also seems to have metallic properties. It seems able to store most energies, particularly magic.


In the Marvel Comics Universe, vibranium is a rare, naturally occurring metallic substance theorized to be of extraterrestrial origin which exists in two forms: ď‚ž Wakandan variety Wakandan Vibranium is the most common variety The Wakandan isotope possesses the ability to absorb all vibrations in the vicinity as well as kinetic energy directed at it.[ ď‚ž Antarctic varietyis native to the Savage Land. This variation produces vibrations of a specific wavelength that breaks down the molecular bonds in other metals (including adamantium), causing them to liquefy. ď‚ž Adamatium is a group of man-made metal alloys that possess varying durability, but are all nearly indestructible.
