Malleable (can be made into thin sheets)
Ductile (can be made into small wires)
Does not corrode
Doesn't react with most acids
Absorbs large quantities of hydrogen gas at high temperatures
Where is it found?
Usually found as by products from mining other metals, such as copper and nickel
Used to make catalysts for oil mining and jewelry
Used to make artificial pacemakers to prevent corrosion
Used with other metals to make artificial pacemakers
Not very reactive
Six isotopes, only one is radioactive (platinum-190)
Platinum dust can have mild health effects. If platinum comes into contact with skin, it can cause rashes and other minor skin problems
This picture shows what an atom of platinum looks like.
Platinum is commonly used to make jewelry, due to its corrosion resistance.
This picture shows platinum in its solid form.
Giant Platinum Robot
The attacker and the giant robot met each other in the town square and met each other before their brawl. The turtle shot acid towards the giant robot, but his platinum surface prevents himself from being corroded. The robot then turned and reflected the sunlight into the turtle's eyes due to his shiny surface. The battle goes on for hours.
After the hours of fighting, the sun has warmed up the robot's surface to the point where the platinum absorbs the hydrogen from surrounding areas. The robot proceeds to focus the hydrogen gas and concentrates it into a beam of energy which launches at the turtle. The turtle attempts to turn around and block it with his shell, but being a turtle, he is too slow and gets impacted by the beam of energy. Once again, the giant platinum robot protects the city of Bucketheadland from an invader.
