Platinum catalysts have usually been prepared by impregnating a platinum precursor on supports with exceptional thermal and mechanical stabilities to achieve a high platinum dispersion and long catalyst life [ 1
Two mesoporous silicas (HMS) with high surface area and a pore diameter size of 2 nm were synthesized by a sol–gel method.
Platinum catalysts were prepared with a 1 wt% metal content. A commercial silica supported catalyst was used for comparison.
The catalysts were characterized by H2-TPR, TEM and 29Si-CP-MAS-NMR. The catalytic activity was measured by the hydrodechlorination of 1,2-dichloroethane. The enhanced activity
of the mesoporous catalysts was related to the platinum particle size.

Partitioning of plutonium from uranium is an important step in the reprocessing of spent fuel by PUREX process of solvent
extraction using 30% TBP-dodecane. This is achieved by selectively reducing the Pu in solution to least extractable trivalent
state by uranous nitrate as the reductant. The latter is conventionally produced by electrolytic reduction of uranyl ion in
presence of hydrazine nitrate as uranous nitrate stabilizer using Pt-coated titanium as the anode. The anode plating wears
out after period of operation thus affecting the process efficiency and hence the quality control testing of platinum plated
electrode becomes important. This article describes the use of Beta backscattering method with strontium-90 radioisotope as
non-destructive testing tool for measuring the coating thickness of the sample Ti electrode. The surface characteristics and
coating morphology were also examined by scanning electron microscope and the micrographs are presented.

Some features of DTA in platinum crucibles in air related to the catalytic activity of platinum in many oxidation reactions have been considered. This property of platinum should be taken into account in the interpretation of the DTA curves.
