Alkali Metals include the following elements: Lithium, Sodium, Potassium, Rubidium, Cesium, and Francium. Cesium and Francium are the most reactive of the elements in the Alkali Metals. When put into water, Alkali Metals explode. Alkali metals are soft and reactive, and they get even more reactive as you go down the list. Francium and Cesium are used in the bombs and tanks that are used during war.
