Molecule Website:
When mercury is added to aluminum, it forms an amalgam (a mercury alloy).
Aluminum is normally protected by a thick oxide layer, but the formation of the amalgam disrupts it. It allows fresh aluminum to react with air to form white aluminum oxide. As the oxide grows, it forms as these cool white fibers.

  • what would the effect of mercury be on normal aluminium sheets? Few people have a blcok of aluminium just lying around, but everyone has aluminium sheets for baking and conserving and stuff (most people don't have mercury either, fair enough. still, some people might want to try this using the mercury of old thermometers)

  • To get the oxide layer off in welding, we use DCEP as our polarity. That means that the electrode has a positive charge, so the electricity goes from the metal to the electrode. This forces the oxides off.
