"I am the real RU." 


Status update:

1844- Just discovered by Karl Karlovich Klaus.

10/1/13 - I was just used to harden platnium.

10/5/13 - HAHA it only take 0.01 of me to stop corrosion of titanium, and i just saved titanium some more time. 

11/4/13 - Just mixed with oxygen to make ruthenium oxide. Ru(s) + O2(g) -> RuO2(s)


I am a hard silvery white transition metal in the platnium group on the periodic table. On the periodic table I am in the 8th group and in the 5th period. I am a solid at room temperature but melt at 800 degrees celsuis.



Relationship Status: 

reading bond 

Primary Relationship: 

single and ready to mingle 



valence electrons:

1 valence elecrons 

reactivity: I really react with oxygen 
state of matter:  solid 
Location on Periodic Table: I am in group 8 and period 5




Discovered by Karl Karlovick Klaus in Russia 


Ruthenium- the search for the rare element 

Activities & Interests:

I love being put in jewelry to make it a more darker fine color. I enjoy hardening other metals like platinum. But my favorite thing to do is separate H2S from oil refineries. One of the other things to do is combine with oxygen and form ruthenium oxide. Ru(s) + O2(g) -> RuO2(s)



- I was found in Russia

- I am found in jewelry stores around the world

-I am mined in South Africa

- Found in the atmosphere with oxygen to make ruthenium oxide. Ru(s) + O2(g) -> RuO2(s)




Create 2 photo albums:

  • atom and bonding diagrams - these will be done in class and will take time
  • fun images - pictures that contain the element

 every photo must have a caption 

- tag other elements in the pictures

Rocking with the shades

I'm in that watch  

Hahahaha beads I am in cost 18,000 




I am a fan of metals, transition metals, solid, liquid and gases.

Ruthenium comes from the orgin work " ruthenia". In latin ruthenia means Russia. It was namednafter Russia because it was found by a Russian scientist.

Who do you react with?

I react with oxygen when heated, water when it is not in normal conditions, and some halogens.

So, I am not the most reactive element out there.
