From synthesis to function - Chemistry with precious metals and noble metals
In the chemical sense, the coinage metals silver and gold as well as the platinum metals (including platinum and palladium) are among the precious metals. However, in view of their increasing use, other metals, such as the rare earth elements, gallium, indium and others are also particularly valuable, i.e. precious in the colloquial sense.
In the lecture it should be made clear that the fundamental investigation of the chemistry of these metals is the basis for the development of functional materials with these elements.
