Aluminium. This valuable material lay undiscovered for thousands of years, in rock, in our planet’s crust, as a compound. It took the industrialisation of the 19th century to make the metal accessible to everyone. The discovery of aluminium’s existence is attributed to Sir Humphry Davy, one of the pioneers of modern electrochemistry. The relatively late discovery of aluminium – in 1807 – is all the more amazing given that it is the most abundant metal in the Earth’s crust.
