Aluminum is the most abundant metallic element on the earth and has many desirable physical and chemical properties. A highly impervious oxide film (approximately 5nm-thick) is resistant to corrosion by seawater, and other aqueous and chemical solutions. Additionally, this element offers chemical stability in the presence of most organic compounds. Aluminum's reactivity increases with temperature, therefore, the use of aluminum labware at high temperatures is not recommended.
