Abstract The systems Pt-O and Rh-O have been investigated at high oxygen pressures (up to 3500 atm) and temperatures ranging from 400 ° to nearly 900 °C. Three platinum oxide phases were found: the hexagonal α-PtO 2 , already described in the literature, a new phase, β-PtO 2 (CaCl 2 structure), and Pt 3 O 4 (Na x Pt 3 O 4 structure). β-PtO 2 andPt 3 O 4 are black, highly insoluble solids, which can be easily synthesized in bulk at high oxygen pressures. The tetragonal PtO phase reported by… Expand
