Ruthenium (Ru) Metal
Ruthenium combines with platinum and palladium as an effective hardener, creating extremely wear-resistant alloys. It improves the corrosion resistance of titanium and is superconductive when combined with molybdenum
Ruthenium is used in the electronics industry for chip resistors and electrical contacts.
Ruthenium is a hardener for platinum and palladium and is alloyed with these metals to make electrical contacts for durability. It is also used in some jewelry as an alloy with platinum. Ruthenium and its compounds are useful for catalysis in organic reactions.
