Gallium and Field's metal alloy?!


Hello! What would happen if you alloy gallium metal with Field's Metal?
Would you get a liquid alloy with a lower melting point than the gallium indium tin alloy? Field's metal has bismuth in it.
So maybe it would make gallium indium tin bismuth alloy. :cool:

I haven't been able to find a good table, but try searching low melting point alloys, fusible alloys, or eutectic alloys and you might find some information. I imagine this would have a melting point between Galinstan and Field's metal. Try it and let us know!

Gallium is different from galinstan. Make sure you know the difference.

The eponymous Simon Quellen Field is very interested in science education and runs the sci-toys website. I don't think it answers your question exactly but he has pages discussing both the metal alloy he developed (i.e. Field's Metal) and the gallium, indium, and tin alloy that is liquid at room temperature
