The most reactive metal in the Periodic table is the Group 1 element francium. Francium is a laboratory-produced element and only minute quantities have been made, so the most reactive naturally occurring metal is caesium. Caesium reacts explosively with water, though it is predicted that francium would react even more explosively!
