Rubidium was discovered by Gustav Kirchhoff and Robert Bunsen in 1861.

It has an atomic number of 37 and is in group 1 and period 5 of the periodic table. The relative atomic mass is 85.468.

Uses

Rubidium is slightly radioactive and is hence used in the field of medicine to locate brain tumors. It is also used as a component of photocells[1].
