Description

General description

Potassium hexachloroplatinate (K2PtCl6) is a source material for the preparation of platinum based compounds. It can be used in the preparation of platinum colloids by its reduction in an aqueous solution.

Application

K2PtCl6 can be used in the preparation of electrodes for potential usage in biosensors. It can be synthesized on nanostructured platinum that can further be used as a cathode catalyst for the oxygen reduction reaction.

Packaging

1 g in glass bottle
