Liquid at 25°C
Bromine (symbol Br and atomic number 35) and mercury (symbol Hg and atomic number 80) are both liquids at room temperature. Bromine is a reddish-brown liquid, with a melting point of 265.9 K. Mercury is a toxic shiny silvery metal, with a melting point of 234.32 K.
Francium, cesium, gallium, and rubidium are four elements that melt at temperatures slightly higher than room temperature. Francium (symbol Fr and atomic number 87), a radioactive and reactive metal, melts around 300 K. Francium is the most electropositive of all the elements. Cesium (symbol Cs and atomic number 55), a soft metal that violently reacts with water, melts at 301.59 K. The low melting point and softness of francium and cesium are a consequence of the size of their atoms. In fact, cesium atoms are larger than those of any other element. Gallium (symbol Ga and atomic number 31), a grayish metal, melts at 303.3 K. Gallium can be melted by body temperature, as in a gloved hand. Rubidium (symbol Rb and atomic number 37) is soft, silvery-white reactive metal, with a melting point of 312.46 K. Rubidium spontaneously ignites to form rubidium oxide. Like cesium, rubidium reacts violently with water.
