In a previous paper (Kath, Olbrich, Math. Z.246, 2004) we developed a general classification scheme for metric Lie algebras, i.e. for finite-dimensional Lie algebras equipped with a non-degenerate invariant inner product. Here we determine all nilpotent Lie algebras formula7 with formula9 which are used in this scheme. Furthermore, we classify all nilpotent metric Lie algebras of dimension at most 10.
