Hg and Liquid Metal Embrittlement to Cu Alloy and Al/brass

Hg and Liquid Metal Embrittlement to Cu Alloy and Al/brass

Actually I have 4 questions regarding Hg LME.

What are materials that are susceptible to liquid Hg embrittlement?  

I understand that different materaials have different degrees of resisistance, then what is the most susceptible material and what is the less ones?

What is the degradation mechanism?

Anything would help promote the crack i.e. Oxygen?
