Metabolite Identification
Common NameRuthenium
DescriptionA polyvalent hard white metal, ruthenium is a member of the platinum group. Like the other metals of the platinum group, ruthenium is inert to most chemicals. Most ruthenium is used for wear-resistant electrical contacts and the production of thick-film resistors. A minor application of ruthenium is its use in some platinum alloys.[Wikipedia]
