Amalgam

The name given to a solution of a metal in mercury or to an alloy of mercury with one or more metals. Most metals will form an amalgam with mercury, and often, as in the case of sodium and potassium, the amalgamation is accompanied by considerable rise of temperature. In other instances, as, for example, in the preparation of tin amalgam, there is an absorption of heat during the process of amalgamation.
