What alloy is created when you melt and mix all metals on the periodic table in equal portions?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (15048points) July 12th, 2018

Does it have a name? What is its melting point? What are its properties?

You can’t mix them all, their melting points are vastly different.

@ARE_you_kidding_me What then is the closest that we can get? Has someone tired it for fun yet? Just wondering. I have faith that it would lead to new materials and new science unless it has been tried before? I can’t be the first to think up this science? What would it cost for 1 gram of each metal? That should be able to get on the commodities market. I will ask in another question.

Graph all of the temperature points where metals are in liquid forms, combine at the overlap.

@ARE_you_kidding_me Thanks that is really helpful. GA!

Sort of like mixing oil, water, and melted wax.

Sounds like you would end up with something like dirt, and just as useful.

If heated to a high enough temperature, certain metals, like lead and mercury, will evaporate or burn off. This would happen before you got all of the metals to a melting point.

@kritiper Thanks GA!. You probably saved me years of trouble and money collecting all the elements and probaly saved me a horrible death from mercury poisoning. Maybe someone would do a scaled down experiment. So I don’t have to start from scratch.
