Abstract

Abstract Superconductivity has previously been observed in pure iridium and in platinum-rich solid solutions, and it has previously been suggested that pure platinum may be superconducting at sufficiently low temperatures. (1) We report here the superconductivity of some intermetallic compounds, eight of which contain appreciable amounts of gold. We assume that the superconducting behavior of the compounds gives information about the pure element. Then we infer that superconductivity in the noble elements may extend from iridium through platinum even as far as gold.
