The platinum metals feature distinctly in a class of highly anisotropic compounds exhibiting one-dimensional properties. An understanding of their molecular structure and their physical and electronic properties permits the synthesis of anisotropic insulators, semiconductors and metals. The possibility of room temperature superconductivity continues to be a focal point of current research.
