Named “little silver” but more precious than gold
Found in your jewellery as I’m nice to behold
I’m really quite durable, don’t tend to react
But you’re after a catalyst? Well I’m great at that!
I’m a transition metal so complexes I form
As cisplatin against cancer I really perform
I do all these and more, I’m quite skilled, me
Atomic number 78, Platinum, Pt.
