is there somewhere to find out what materials are allowed to be used on spacecrafts, satellites etc.

There are NASA standards as well as MIL standards that describe what material cannot be flown on a space vehicle. The materials vary by application - for instance lead-tin solder is not permitted for electronic circuit cards as the tin tends to form whiskers in a vacuum which can result in short circuits on the circuit card. A quick Google search can get you the references - but fair warning, they are detailed. There may be summaries available as well.

There is really nothing that says that you can use material A but not allowed to use material B. Spacecraft designers use whatever material suites the purpose.
