General description

Platinum (Pt) is a highly ductile, malleable and unreactive metal. It is resistant to corrosion and stable at high temperatures. Although resistant to hydrochloric and nitric acid, it dissolves readily in hot aqua regia to form chloroplatinic acid.

Application

Pt wire may be used :
  • as a microelectrode-indicator electrode in voltammetry
  • as a transvascular embolic agent
  • to study chronopotentiometry of hydrogen peroxide with a platinum wire electrode or
  • in gas detection instruments.

Metal-mediated rearrangements of 3-alkynyl flavone ethers are reported. The overall process involves 5-endo enyne cyclization to a platinum-containing spiro-oxocarbenium intermediate which may be trapped with methanol to produce spirodihydrofurans or further rearranged to afford either allenyl chromanediones or benzofuranones.
