In 2011, the newest group of layered high-temperature superconductors were discovered: platinum-based quaternary 10-4-8 (Ca10(Pt4As8)(Fe2As2)5) and 10-3-8 ((CaFe1‐xPtxAs)10Pt3As8) phases with superconducting transition temperatures (TC) up to 35‐38 K. Intensive studies have been carried out to investigate their preparation and properties. This finding stimulated much activity in search of related materials and has attracted increased attention to platinum as a component of layered superconductors. This review presents experimental and theoretical results devoted to two main groups of superconducting materials with platinum: Pt-based materials (where Pt forms individual sub-lattices inside building blocks of corresponding phases such as SrPtAs, SrPt2As2 and LaPt2B2C) and Pt-containing materials, where Pt acts as a dopant. Synthesis, basic properties and simulation of these materials are covered.
