This paper reviews current physical and chemical properties of the alloy Pb-17Li. Special reference is made to the properties of interest for the technical application of the alloy as a liquid breeder, particularly corrosion of austenitic, ferritic and martensitic steels. Technological problems facing the possible utilisation of this breeder as a fusion reactor blanket are also discussed.
