platinum catalyst


I am interested in doing a thing that calls for this element. I've been browsing a little and my budget is not prepared for the price of platinum.
Is there a replacement with similar properties that doesn't break the bank.
As a side note:
I had a different user name before, I had asked about the separation of KOH in drain opener.
I got a book and have been studying long and hard. I have now gotten into the bio section and am getting anxious for some action.
I must of been crazy not to get involved in chemistry until now. What fun we're having!

Well, it depends on what "thing" exactly you're planning on doing as to weather one catalyst can be satisfactorily substituted for another.

direct reduction of the hydroxyl on the L-ephedrine sulfate sidechain in glacial acetic acid using 70% perchloric acid as a promoter and 5% palladium-on-carbon as the catalyst.

Pd is what I would like to use because I have a possible source. I'm just feeling out my options, I noticed that the replies stopped when I announced my intentions.
Somebody told me that I needed a prescription to purchase I2, the otherday at the try and save.
If I was trying to understand chemistry and I understood that I liked to experience the effects of chemicals and I also understood that understanding something is the only way to effectively make an educated decision....

What the fuck was I talking about?
