Some water-reactive substances are also pyrophoric.
Some of the metals that are reactive with water are lithium, sodium, potassium, rubidium, and caesium. These metals are usually stored in containers with oil so that, if any water is brought into the container, it and the oil will separate, protecting the metal.
