Let’s Begin…

The team at periodicvideos has created a TED-Ed Lesson for every element of the periodic table. This one element, ruthenium, has a rather special place in the heart of Professor Martyn Poliakoff.

Create and share a new lesson based on this one.

Ruthenium is one of the six platinum group metals (Ru, Os, Rh, Ir, Pd and Pt). It is used in jewelry, as a thin plating that has a darkish grey, pewter-like shine to it.
