rho·di·um

 (rō′dē-əm)
n. Symbol Rh
A hard, durable, silvery-white metallic element that is used to form high-temperature alloys with platinum and is plated on other metals to produce a durable corrosion-resistant coating. Atomic number 45; atomic weight 102.905; melting point 1,964°C; boiling point 3,695°C; specific gravity 12.41 (20°C); valence 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. See Periodic Table.

[Greek rhodo-, rhodo- + -ium.]

rhodium

(ˈrəʊdɪəm)
n
(Elements & Compounds) a hard corrosion-resistant silvery-white element of the platinum metal group, occurring free with other platinum metals in alluvial deposits and in nickel ores. It is used as an alloying agent to harden platinum and palladium. Symbol: Rh; atomic no: 45; atomic wt: 102.90550; valency: 2–6; relative density: 12.41; melting pt: 1963±3°C; boiling pt: 3697±100°C
[C19: New Latin, from Greek rhodon rose, from the pink colour of its compounds]

rho•di•um

(ˈroʊ di əm)

n.
a silvery white metallic element of the platinum family, forming salts that give rose-colored solutions: used to electroplate metals to prevent corrosion. Symbol: Rh; at. wt.: 102.905; at. no.: 45; sp. gr.: 12.5 at 20°C.
