Precious Metal Elements
Let our entertaining cartoon characters give you easy-to-understand explanations of the characteristics and functions of the following precious metals.
Principles and Examples of Detection for In-Vitro Diagnostic Kits
When gold is in colloidal form (nanoparticles), it takes on a red coloring. This property has been used in the field of medicine recently in diagnostic kits.
Principles of Proton-Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells and Role of Platinum
Platinum is used in fuel cells, the environmentally friendly next-generation energy supply system currently in the spotlight.
Hydrogen Permeation Mechanism Using Palladium Membrane
Palladium is a metal with superior permeability to hydrogen only.
Ruthenium Increases Hard Disk Storage
Ruthenium helps increase storage capacity when used for one of the layers of hard disks (magnetic disks).
Structure of Vehicle Exhaust Emission Control Catalyst and Role of Rhodium
Rhodium contributes towards eco-driving by eliminating nitrogen oxide, the cause of acid rain.
Iridium Alloy Chips for Spark Plugs
Able to withstand the corrosion and heat of harsh environments, iridium alloy helps extend the life of spark plugs.
Silver and Mirrors
Silver reflects almost 100% of light, so throughout the ages, this characteristic has been put to use in mirrors.
