Palladium (Pd), a chemical element that’s known to be the least dense and lowest melting of all the Platinum metals, is used primarily as a catalyst and in alloys such as white gold. However, its chief and critically vital use is in automobile catalytic converters as a catalyst to convert polluting carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide emissions into water, carbon dioxide and nitrogen.
In fact, Palladium is viewed by many as the powerful secret weapon that will fight pollution by negating the harmful effects of noxious emissions, thus improving overall air quality. This infographic presents a detailed perspective.
