Caesium hydroxide or cesium hydroxide (CsOH) is a chemical compound consisting of caesium ions and hydroxide ions. It is a strong base (pKb=-1.76), much like the other alkali metal hydroxides such as sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide. In fact, caesium hydroxide is corrosive enough to dissolve through glass quickly. Due to its high reactivity, Caesium Hydroxide is extremely hygroscopic. Laboratory caesium hydroxide is typically a hydrate. It is an anisotropic etchant of silicon, exposing octahedral planes. Wikipedia
