When do we put a Pt on the cell diagram?

Use platinum (Pt) if the half reaction for one (or both) sides of the cell do not have a conducting metal in them. If there is no conducting metal, use Pt on the outermost section of the cell diagram to show that you are using a platinum electrode because there are no conducting metals present naturally on that side due to the half reaction taking place.
