Platinum-198 Isotope Information and Examples of Enriched Platinum-198 Applications:

Platinum-198 isotope (Pt-198 isotope, 198Pt isotope)

  • Platinum-198 isotope is used for determination of chemical yield using method of neutron-activation analysis in the selection/determination of noble metals;
  • Platinum-198 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 of 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 Information

Attractive greyish-white metal. When pure, it is malleable and ductile. Does not oxidize in air, insoluble in hydrochloric and nitric acid. Corroded by halogens, cyandies, sulphur and alkalis. Hydrogen and Oxygen react explosively in the presence of platinumpy. There are six stable isotopes and three radioisotopes, the most stable being Pt-193 with a half-life of 60 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. Platinum-Cobalt alloys have magnetic properties. It is also used in the definition of the Standard Hydrogen Electrode. Discovered by Antonio de Ulloa in South America in 1735. The name comes from the Spanish word platina which means silver. Platinum metal is generally not a health concern due to its unreactivity, however platinum compounds should be considered highly toxic.

Used in jewelry, to make crucible and special containers and as a catalyst. Used with cobalt to produce very strong magnets. Also to make standard weights and measures. Resists corrosion and acid attacks except aqua regia.
