About Oxaliplatin

Oxaliplatin (formal name: (SP-4-2)-[1R,2R-cyclohexanediamine-κN1,κN2][ethanedioato(2-)-κO1,κO2]-platinum) is a organometallic compound and one of several platinum-based antineoplastic agents used in certain types of chemotherapy for the treatment of cancer. These compounds, also known as platins, include Cisplatin, Nedaplatin, Carboplatin, and Satraplatin. Please note that this material is for research purposes only and not intended for human use.

The number of electrons in each of platinum's shells is [2, 8, 18, 32, 17, 1] and its electron configuration is [Xe] 4f14 5d9 6s1. The platinum atom has a radius of 139 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 175 pm. Platinum Bohr ModelElemental PlatinumPlatinum was discovered and first isolated by Antonio de Ulloa in 1735. It is one of the rarest elements in the earth's crust, occurring at a concentration of only 0.005 ppm. Platinum is found uncombined as a free element and alloyed with iridium as platiniridium. In its elemental form, platinum has a grayish white appearance. It is highly resistant to corrosion: the metal does not oxidize in air at any temperature. It is generally non-reactive, even at high temperatures. The origin of the name "platinum" comes from the Spanish word platina, meaning silver.
