The chapter clarifies the limits where the standard metal physics fails for metals with high electron density. This is the Ioffe-Regel limit where the mean free path becomes comparable to the interatomic distance and the electron diffusion is hampered. Here, even the diffraction theory of electron transport in liquid metals fails, and empirical Mooji rule and saturation of resistivity with increase of the temperature work instead. The experiment shows that neither an increase in the static or dynamic disorder nor their joint effect can ensure electron localization and transformation of a metal with high electron density into insulator.

Keywords:   disorder, electron diffusion, electron transport, Ioffe-Regel limit, liquid metals, mean free path, Mooji rule, saturation of resistivity
