No, platinum IS an element. It's a grey-white metal, is very resistant to corrosion, & is one of the rarest elements in the earth's crust. It's often used in automobile catalytic converters, where it causes toxic byproducts of internal combustion engines to either further and completely oxidize, or in the case of nitrogen oxides, break down into elemental nitrogen.
