CONVERSION OF REFINERY MATERIALS INTO ORGANOMETALLIC PRECURSORS: SYNTHESIS OF INORGANIC DERIVATIVES
Anglo Platinum currently stores some of its recovered osmium as the relatively stable potassium osmate salt and ruthenium in the form of ammonium hexachlororuthenate or an acidic ruthenium solution at its refinery plant.

Anglo Platinum currently stores some of its recovered osmium as the relatively stable potassium osmate salt and ruthenium in the form of ammonium hexachlororuthenate or an acidic ruthenium solution at its refinery plant. To date the development of the chemistry of these starting materials to provide useful inorganic and organometallic precursors has not been extensively reported. This is partly due to the relative cost of osmium starting materials and the inertness of most osmium complexes and also the toxicity of osmium tetroxide. Most known ruthenium compounds are usually made from ruthenium trichloride trihydrate.In the present project locally available refinery materials have been converted into a range of known osmium and ruthenium compounds including clusters together with the well known Grubbs' catalyst starting material as well as other useful complexes. The development of the synthesis of convenient osmium and ruthenium precursors as well as potential catalysts has been proven to be possible based on standard (literature) synthetic methods using the Anglo Platinum refinery material. Some procedures are new and some are modified literature procedures.
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc.
