Gold (Au)

Humans have been working with gold for around 10,000 years. Of all the precious metals, it is the softest, has the lowest tensile strength, and is tied with silver for the greatest ductility.

Heraeus offers gold compunds for catalysts coating. It mainly serves as a co-catalyst for some large-scale processes, e.g. to manufacture vinyl acetate monomer (“VAM”) with palladium.
