Recent progress in the theoretical study on the structure of liquid metals under high temperature and high pressure is reviewed. In particular, the density dependence of the static and dynamical structure of expanded liquid alkali metals along the liquid-vapour coexistence curve from the melting point to the critical point is investigated by the recent reliable integral equation theory. The theory can reproduce well the characteristic features of the structure of expanded liquid alkali metals obtained experimentally. The temperature dependence of the structure of liquid alkali metals along the isocore line is also investigated.
