Applications of Precious Metal Fine Chemicals
From the alarm clock that awakens us, to the light switch we flip on the catalysts that reduce our cars’ noxious emissions, to the mobile phone that connects us to our peers. Precious metals are active in every aspect of our life. Every day, we unknowingly rely on them to work, travel, communicate and improve our life.
Electronic components like connectors, printed circuit boards – are plated with a thin layer of Gold or Palladium that helps dissolve heat and maintains the electrical properties of electrical junctions, as well as the performance of the device in which they are integrated.
Photographic film is coated with silver Halide, which undergoes a photochemical reaction when exposed to light. The images are developed onto photographic paper also coated with silver halide.
Many electrical components like switches, contacts, relays and circuit breakers boast Silver tips to ensure the quality of the electrical contacts.
Due to their high melting points and resistance to corrosion by molten glass, platinum-Rhodium Alloys are used in fabrication of specialty glasses which are used in display technologies and decorative glassware.
The electrode layers used in 15% of the world’s ceramic capacitors – essential to the functioning of cars, phones, computers, TVs and even aircraft – are made with a palladium-Silver Paste.
Platinum-Rhodium Alloys are used in the manufacturing of insulating and reinforcement glass fiber that are used in manufacturing of photosensitive windows, routinely used in office buildings.
Gold, Platinum and Palladium are used in a variety of dental applications for robust tooth decay treatments and implant surgeries etc.
Cancer treatment indulged with chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy Platinum is an active constituent in a range of drugs used in cancer treatment.
Music and data
Both silver and gold are present in CD-ROMs. Their superior reflectivity allows for a greater density of information storage and guarantees high-quality restitution of data. Computer hard disks are coated with thin layers of Platinum and Ruthenium that increase their data storage capacity.
The excellent biocompatibility of Platinum, combined with its radio-opacity ensures its extensive use in life saving cardiovascular implants such as defibrillators and pacemaker electrodes.
Car safety and reliability
A car mechanism is divided in different components like cars’ fuel injection system, airbag inflation devices and spark plugs all rely on the properties of Platinum, Palladium and Iridium in their proper functioning.
The catalytic properties of platinum, Palladium and Rhodium are successfully plays their part in prevention of harmful emission like carbon mono-oxide and other noxious gases.
From fertilizers to polymers and from sodium hydroxide to oil derivatives, the chemicals used by hundreds of industries owe their existence to the unique catalytic properties of Platinum, Palladium, Ruthenium, Iridium and Rhodium.
Platinum and Ruthenium is used in fuel cell electrodes. This clean technology that combines hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity is finding applications in battery chargers, residential combined heat & power units, uninterruptible power supplies and forklift trucks.
Platinum is also an excellent conductor and is malleable enough to be worked into fine wires and intricate shapes. Platinum’s high melting point and resistance to corrosion allows it to maintain its performance in even the most demanding operating conditions, making it an unmatched high temperature construction material. Also an exceptional catalyst, Platinum is widely used to promote chemical reactions between other substances.
Palladium shares most of platinum’s properties despite its lower density and melting point. It is most widely used as a catalyst in car exhaust converters and in the chemical industry.
Extremely corrosion resistant and boasting high melting points, iridium, rhodium and ruthenium also present unique properties making them suitable for scores of critical catalytic and industrial applications.
Gold is the most malleable and ductile of all metals. It is routinely alloyed with other metals to render it harder, particularly in the jewellery, dental and electrical arenas. Chemically stable, gold does not corrode or tarnish and remains an excellent conductor of heat and electricity.
Silver remains the best electrical and thermal conductor of all metals but, unlike gold, it tarnishes easily. Slightly harder than gold, and with a lower melting point, silver responds in such a way that it guarantees the broadest range of applications.
Silver’s high reflectivity ensures its use in mirrors, and the unique photo-reactive nature of its chemicals guarantees its application in photographic products.
