Abstract : This paper presents and discusses the available data and information on the electrical resistivity of alkali elements (lithium, sodium, potassium, rubidium, cesium, and francium) and contains recommended reference values (or provisional or typical values). The compiled data include all the experimental data available from the literature and cover the temperature dependence, pressure dependence, and magnetic flux density dependence. The temperature range covered by the compiled data is from cryogenic temperatures to above the critical temperature of the elements. The recommended values are generated from critical evaluation, analysis, and synthesis of the available data and information and are given for both the total electrical resistivity and the intrinsic electrical resistivity. For most of the elements, the recommended values cover the temperature range from 1 K to 2000 K. (Author)
