Using Lithium Tetraborate to Fuse Alkaline Earth Metals

Alkaline earth metals are the six chemical elements that are in group two of the periodic table. The elements consist of beryllium (Be), magnesium (Mg), calcium (Ca), strontium (Sr), barium (Ba), and radium (Ra).

All of these metals (apart from radium) and their compounds are used in commercial applications. Both magnesium and calcium occur frequently in nature and are a significant part of many geological and biological processes.

Fusion is the name given to chemical attacks on solid samples to convert them into compounds that are transformed into a solution easily. These compounds are a transitional step between the initial sample and the solution that is employed later in any analytical process.
