Scientists create first intermetallic double salt with platinum

Scientists report that they have created the first intermetallic double salt with platinum. Cesium platinide hydride, or 4Cs2Pt?CsH, forms a translucent ruby red crystal and can exist only in an inert environment similar to conditions that exist in outer space. It’s a new member of a rare family of compounds in which a metal forms a truly negatively charged ion.
