Abstract
Beryillium, an alkaline earth metal, is the fourth element of the periodic table, with an atomic weight of 9.012. It is the 44th most abundant element, dull grey in color and occurs naturally in the environment. Beryllium was discovered by Vanquelin in 1797, but commercial manufacture of beryllium products did not begin until after beryllium-copper-aluminium alloy was patented in 1926.
