How Does Radium React?

Answer

Radium is a silvery white metal that is highly radioactive and its decay product, radon gas, is also radioactive. When it is exposed to air, it reacts with nitrogen to quickly form a black coating of radium nitride. Radium reacts very vigorously with water to form hydrogen gas and radium hydroxide. It reacts even more vigorously with hydrochloric acid to form radium chloride.
