Aluminum and Mercury

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.

Just a quick couple question do you get the same reaction with different types of aluminum and the temper (hardness) create a different reaction? When you cut the specimen in half did you do any kind of spectral analysis test to see if the composition of the aluminum material had changed from the original aluminum composition -

What happens when you add mercury to aluminum powder?
How does it react with caesium?

Try the Hg + Al experiment in a vacuum.
You left out an important catalyst -> O2
