Available in free flow form, Ruthenium Powder is used for producing scientific instruments, for processing of pulp, compounds and alloy based materials. It acts as powerful catalyst in different reactions. It also serves as carrier for solid oxide. Ruthenium Powder also acts as suitable hardening agent when it is alloyed with palladium and platinum for generating effective electrical contacts. Its conductivity level improves when it is alloyed with molybdenum. Studies are going on to prove anti carcinogenic properties of several compounds of this chemical. Research is also going on to explore its importance in solar energy production. It is also utilized for manufacturing high temperature proof alloys for designing aircraft engine. Its inclusion in 0.1% amount to titanium enhances corrosion resistant attributes of metal.
