Ruthenium (Ru) Metal

Ruthenium (Ru) Metal, a member of the platinum group, is a hard, lustrous, white metal that does not tarnish at room temperatures and is inert to most other chemicals. It does not occur natively but in combination with other platinum group metals.
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

Purity 99.9%
Typical Applications

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.
