The reduction behaviour and the phase composition of platinum-chromium samples (unsupported and on alumina carrier) were investigated with the help of temperature-programmed reduction (TPR), X-ray diffraction, ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) spectroscopy and ethane hydrogenolysis. Co-reduction and the formation of alloys was found to occur when H2PtCl6and (CrO3)xwere used as starting materials. Annealing of the samples above 500°C led to the formation of a ferromagnetic Pt3Cr superlattice. Addition of chromium to platinum/alumina attenuates the hydrogenolysis activity; annealing results in an additional strong decrease of this demanding reaction. © 1989.
