Lithium reacting with water, high-speed footage. Drops of water being added to the element lithium using a pipette. Lithium (Li) is a highly reactive metallic element. It reacts violently with water to produce hydrogen (H2) gas and lithium hydroxide (LiOH). This is the start of the reaction. For the full reaction, at normal speed with more water added, see clip K004/1470.
