Platinum-196 Isotope Information and Examples of Enriched Platinum-196 Applications:

Platinum-196 isotope (Pt-196 isotope, 196Pt isotope)

  • Platinum-196 isotope is used for production of gamma-ray resonant sources;
  • Platinum-196 isotope is used for determination of chemical yield using method of neutron-activation analysis in the selection/determination of noble metals;
  • Platinum-196 isotope is used for research and applications in mass cytometry which is a mass spectrometry technique. In the mass cytometry antibodies are combined and resolved in individual cells as compared to traditional fluorescence-based cytometry. It uses antibodies coupled to isotopically enriched purified mass tags, each with a unique mass, that can be quantified in individual cells using an Inductively-Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS) (for life science i.e. health and medicine applications and pharmaceuticals industries);

Platinum-196 Information

Platinum is an attractive greyish-white metal. When pure, it is malleable and ductile. Platinum does not oxidize in air, insoluble in hydrochloric and nitric acid. This element is corroded by halogens, cyanides, sulphur and alkalis. Hydrogen and Oxygen react explosively in the presence of platinum. Platinum has 40 isotopes. There are 6 naturally occurring isotopes, 5 of which are stable. The most stable being Pt-193 with a half-life of 50 years. Platinum is used in jewelry, laboratory equipment, electrical contacts, dentistry, and anti-pollution devices in cars. PtCl2(NH3)2 is used to treat some forms of cancer. It is also used in the definition of the Standard Hydrogen Electrode. Platinum was discovered by Antonio de Ulloa in South America in 1735. The name Platinum comes from the Spanish word platina which means "little silver". Platinum metal is generally not a health concern due to its unreactivity, however platinum compounds should be considered highly toxic.

Platinum is used in jewelry, to make crucible and special containers and as a catalyst. It is used with cobalt to produce very strong magnets. Platinum-Cobalt alloys have magnetic properties. This element is also used to make standard weights and measures. Platinum resists corrosion and acid attacks except aqua regia.
