Hittorf showed that when a current was passed through a solution of sodium platino-chloride, the platinum appeared at the anode.
From 1827 to 1833 he was occupied mainly with chemical researches, which resulted in the discovery of the first of the platino-ammonium compounds ("Magnus's green salt" is Pt11 2j 2NH 3), of sulphovinic, ethionic and isethionic acids and their salts, and, in conjunction with C. F.
The platino-chlorides are reduced by hydrogen, and the caesium and rubidium chlorides extracted by water.
The best source of rubidium salts is the residue left after extracting lithium salts from lepidolite, the method of separation being based on the different solubilities of the platino-chlorides of potassium, rubidium and caesium in water (R.
