The group VIII platinum-group metals and the periodic table

Foundations of Chemistry 12 (1):17-25 (2010)
The six platinum group metals (pgms: ruthenium, rhodium, palladium, osmium, iridium and platinum) posed a number of problems for 19th-century chemists, including Mendeleev, for their Periodic classification. This account discusses the discovery of the pgms, the determination of their atomic weights and their classification.
