Copper
Copper conducts heat well and resists corrosion and is used worldwide in pipes and tubing to distribute both hot and cold fluids. Pure copper (greater than 99.95%) is called electrolytic copper (EC). Copper is a great conductor of electricity and even small amounts of impurities in copper can seriously reduce its ability to conduct electricity. Copper is also a major player in various other applications such as cables, computers, coins, radiators and energy. Alloys are many, the most common ones being brass (primarily with zinc) and bronze (primarily with tin).
 
Advantages 
  • Excellent electrical and thermal conductor
  • Malleable and ductile - good for bending copper pipes into shapes
  • Attractive look
  • Very durable
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Antibacterial
  • Easily joined
  • Tough
  • Non-magnetic
  • Easy to alloy
  • Recyclable
  • Catalytic.
 
Disadvantages
  • Expensive
  • Not very strong - can be bent and broken easily
  • Tarnishes and can corrode quickly if left exposed to the air

Virginia Tech researchers find tiny bubbles a storehouse of knowledge
Fluid inclusions, tiny bubbles of fluid or vapor trapped inside rock as it forms, are clues to the location of ores and even petroleum; and they are time capsules that contain insights on the power of volcanos and hints of life in the universe.
With what what you see is not always what you get
Many factors influence the quality of drinking water and a burgeoning new problem is raising concern. Metallic plumbing materials, capable of lasting for centuries, are occasionally corroding at a very fast rate. This deterioration is producing some extraordinary costs and environmental problems to
