The technique for compressing macroscopic volumes of hydrogen to record pressures of tens of kilobars, developed in the Institute of Solid State Physics of the USSR Academy of Sciences, has permitted the first syntheses of the hydrides of a number of metals namely: manganese, iron, cobalt, molybdenum, technetium, rhenium and gold. This paper presents the results of the application of the technique for the hydrogenation of the platinum metals. The data obtained on hydrogen solubility at high pressures are used to estimate its equilibrium solubility at atmospheric pressure.
