Using HPGe detectors, the K X-rays and prompt gamma-rays below 200 keV from Ru, Rh, Pd, Ag, Re, Os, Ir, Pt and Au were measured under bombardment with protons from 1.8 to 5.4 MeV. Excitation functions for analytically important gamma-rays were determined. Interference-free sensitivities were calculated and the method was tested by the analysis of standard dental alloys.
