Aluminium (or aluminum) is a chemical element in the boron group wi seembol Al an atomic nummer 13. It is a sillery white, saft, ductile metal. Aluminium is the third maist abundant element (efter oxygen an silicon), an the maist abundant metal, in the Yird's crust. It maks up aboot 8% bi wicht o the Yird's solid surface. Aluminium metal is so chemically reactive that native specimens are rare an leemitit tae extreme reducing environments. Instead, it is foond combined in ower 270 different minerals.[5] The chief ore o aluminium is bauxite.

Aluminium is remarkable for the metal's law density an for its ability tae resist corrosion due tae the phenomenon o passivation. Structural components made frae aluminium an its alloys are vital tae the aerospace industry an are important in ither auries o transportation an structural materials. The maist uiseful compounds o aluminium, at least on a wicht basis, are the oxides an sulfates.

Despite its prevalence in the environment, aluminium salts are nae kent tae be uised bi ony fairm o life. In keepin wi its pervasiveness, aluminium is well toleratit bi plants an ainimals.[6] Owin tae thair prevalence, potential beneficial (or itherwise) biological roles o aluminium compounds are o continuin interest.
