Last seen

Rubidium was last seen in the Alkali Metals group in a vacuum cleaner to boost sucking production.


Rubidium is generally stable in its pure form unless you add water.

Report of first arrest

In 1861 rubidium was discovered when Gustav and Bunsen used their spectroscopy method that they developed over the previous two years. I the spectroscope there was a prism to reflect light over a burner. By adding different salts that burned different colors they knew that they burnt. When they used hydrochloroplatanic acid and potassium chloroplanite they formed rubidium.


Rubidium is highly reactive. Like most alkali metals it is reactive to water. When it comes in contact with water it makes a huge explosion as seen in the picture below. Rubidium combines with other elements to make mixtures and compounds such as rubidium hydroxide or RbOH. Also rubidium and oxygen form Rubidium perioxides or RbO2.
