This document specifies a gravimetric method for the determination of platinum on a material considered homogeneous. The platinum content of the sample lies preferably between 50 and 999 parts per thousand (‰) by mass. Fineness above 999 ‰ can be determined using a spectroscopy method by difference (e.g. ).
This method is also intended to be used as one of the recommended methods for the determination of fineness in jewellery alloys covered by .
