Here are some of its physical and chemical properties:

1. Melting point: Galinstan is a low-melting-point alloy with a melting point of approximately 10°C, making it one of the lowest-melting-point metal alloys known.

2. Density: Galinstan has a density of around 6.4 g/cm³, which is lower than many common metals.

3. Coefficient of thermal expansion: Galinstan has a relatively low coefficient of thermal expansion, approximately 13.1 x 10^-6/K, meaning its linear expansion is relatively small when subjected to temperature changes.

4. Electrical conductivity: Galinstan has good electrical conductivity, with a conductivity of around 3.46 x 10^6 S/m, slightly lower than copper and other common metals.

5. Thermal conductivity: Galinstan has a relatively low thermal conductivity of approximately 16.5 W/mK, lower than copper and other common metals.

6. Hardness: As Galinstan is a liquid alloy, its hardness cannot be described using traditional hardness measurements.

7. Viscosity: The viscosity of Galinstan varies with temperature and stress, and is typically around 0.002 Pa·s at room temperature.

8.Surface tension: Galinstan has a relatively low surface tension of approximately 0.7-0.8 N/m, meaning its surface is relatively active when in a liquid state and is not prone to forming droplets or spreading out.

9.Low toxicity: Galinstan is relatively safe and low in toxicity, which makes it a potential replacement for toxic mercury in certain applications.

10.Coatability: Galinstan can be coated onto different surfaces to form conductive and thermally conductive coatings, making it potentially useful in electronic, optoelectronic, and energy-related applications.

11.Compatibility with certain materials: Galinstan has good compatibility with some materials, such as indium oxide and tin oxide. This makes it potentially useful as an electrode or conductor material in some electronic devices.

12.High refractive index: Galinstan has a relatively high refractive index, around 1.8, which makes it potentially useful in optical applications such as in the preparation of high refractive index lenses and optical components.

13.Gallium-indium-tin eutectic alloy is a non-magnetic material, which means it does not exhibit ferromagnetism, paramagnetism, or diamagnetism. Although it is not a magnetic material, it has a unique magneto-electric effect, which causes a change in its electrical resistance in the presence of a magnetic field. This effect can be utilized to manufacture special electronic devices such as magneto-electric sensors and switches.

14.Galinstan has not been extensively studied for its biocompatibility. While it has potential applications in industrial settings such as temperature sensors and liquid metal electrodes, its biocompatibility and safety for medical applications have not been fully evaluated. Therefore, more in-depth research and evaluation are needed when using Galinstan as a medical device or biomedical material to ensure its safety and biocompatibility.

Overall, Galinstan has low melting point, low density, low coefficient of thermal expansion, good electrical conductivity, low thermal conductivity, relatively low surface tension, and good flowability, which make it potentially useful in specific applications such as temperature sensors, liquid metal electrodes, and thermoelectric materials. Galinstan's low toxicity, coatability, compatibility with certain materials, and high refractive index make it a material with potential applications in electronics, optics, energy, and medical fields.
