"The purpose of this research was to investigate the thermal reduction of beryllium chloride by metallic magnesium. Beryllium is a remarkable element, being characterized by its hardness, lightness and durability. Although the art of metallurgy has developed to a point at which most metals can be produced at a low cost, there are a few metals, of which beryllium is an outstanding example, which can only be obtained at high prices and in small amounts because of the difficulties of recovering the metals as such from their compounds which occur in nature. Small amounts of pure beryllium can be obtained, however, by electrolyzing molten beryllium chloride or a molten mixture of the oxide and fluoride"--Introduction, page 1.
