Determination of platinum and ruthenium in Pt and Pt-Ru catalysts with carbon support by direct and derivative spectrophotometry.

Platinum and ruthenium in carbon supported Pt and Pt-Ru catalysts were determined by direct and derivative spectrophotometric methods. Complexes of platinum and ruthenium with SnCl(3)(-) ligands (tin(II) chloride in HCl) were used to determine both metals in solutions obtained after digestion of the samples of the catalysts. Platinum in the Pt/C catalyst… CONTINUE READING
