Latest Virtual Issue: ‘The Chemistry of the Platinum Group Metals’
A collection of reviews of a triennial international conference series devoted solely to the chemistry of the platinum group metals. The conferences were sponsored jointly by the Dalton Division of the Royal Society of Chemistry and Johnson Matthey and covered topics such as organometallic, catalytic and coordination chemistry. The Virtual Issue is available to download free of charge.
The Resources section provides links, further reading and additional information about the platinum group metals.

A History of Platinum and its Allied Metals
“A History of Platinum and its Allied Metals” is a comprehensive and frequently cited book on the history of platinum and its associated metals, published by Johnson Matthey. It covers important discoveries and scientific work on the pgms up to the early twentieth century. Increasing knowledge of the six metals is interwoven with the growth in science since the eighteenth century. The book contains twenty-four chapters, 450 pages, over 600 references and 235 illustrations (20 in colour) including 100 portraits.
