Beryllium (Be) is a lightweight metal with unique chemical & physical properties. It is stiff, resistant to corrosion, a good conductor of electricity & heat, & dimensionally stable during extreme temperature changes. These properties have made it desirable for many commercial & defense applications, such as aircraft & satellite structures, high-speed electronic circuitry, nuclear applications, & precision instruments. It has also been used in dental appliances, golf clubs, non-sparking tools, & wheelchairs. This book discusses the physicochemical properties, applications & safety concerns of beryllium.
