2.2.4 Summary to: Conductors - General Applications

No electrical engineering without conductors! Hundreds of specialized metal alloys exist just for "wires" because besides s, other demands must be met, too: Money, Chemistry (try Na!), Mechanical and Thermal properties, Compatibility with other materials, Compatibility with production technologies, ...
Example for unexpected conductors being "best" compromise: Poly Si, Silicides, TiN, W in integrated circuits.
Don't forget Special Applications:   Contacts (switches, plugs, ...);
Heating elements; ...
