Platinum (Pt) is a metallic chemical element with a white-silver luster. It is the most widely used element among the six transition elements in group X of the periodic table. They are also known as the platinum metals (ruthenium, rhodium, palladium, osmium, iridium and platinum). Platinum is a precious metal that is very heavy, but also soft and ductile. It has a high melting point and excellent resistance to corrosion. These properties make platinum a useful material in several different industries. Platinum is used in the automobile industry as fuel cells for electric cars, in the medical field in pacemakers, and as temperature sensors
