The alkali metals consist of the chemical elements lithium (Li), sodium (Na), potassium (K), rubidium (Rb), caesium (Cs), and francium (Fr). This family of elements is also known as the lithium family after its leading element. Much like the lithium in lithium-ion batteries, Alkali Members keep the museum running.
