In 1991 it was found that intercalation of alkalimetal atoms in solid C60 leads to metallic behavior.

Randomized benchmarking of atomic qubits in an optical lattice
For the Hund’s case (a) X1Σ+ state of an alkalimetal dimer, the total electron spin and orbital angular momentum are not coupled to the molecular rotation.
Electric field-dependent dynamic polarizability and "magic" conditions for optical trapping of polar molecules
For example, experimental measurements of the change in work function as a function of alkalimetal coverage can be quite different to the “expected” form of Fig. 5.16 and the density of states induced by alkali-metal adsorbates may not correspond to that expected from the model of Gurney.
Theory of Adsorption on Metal Substrates
This is indeed the case of magnetic traps: since the magnetic moments of the alkalimetals are very similar, the only difference in the trapping strengths is due to their different masses, with the angular trapping frequencies scaling as ωf /ωb ≃ (mb /mf )1/2 .

Relativistic many-body calculations of energy levels, hyperﬁne constants, electric-dipole matrix elements, and static polarizabilities for alkalimetal atoms.

After the experimental success in producing Bose-Einstein condensation of trapped alkalimetal atoms, there is renewed interest in calculating the number ﬂuctuation using either canonical or microcanonical ensemble approach [1–7].
