In this paper the electronic structures of the elements of Group VIII of the Periodic Table are outlined, and the difference between the platinum metals and other metals in the group is emphasised. The constitution of the alloys of the platinum metals with silver and gold is then discussed, and an interpretation is offered. The alloying behaviour of the platinum metals with a number of transition metals is interpreted in terms of some recently established electron concentration principles.
