  1. Yes, catalytic converters are quite easy to steal and worth quite a bit for the platinum they contain. Rhodium and palladium are platinum isotopes, and traces of these are present in the scant few grams of standard platinum particles inside catalytic converters. Depending upon the kind of vehicle, there can be as much as five grams of total platinum in many catalytic converters. As of February 22nd, platinum is not quite $1,300 an ounce or roughly $40 per gram. Theives know which particular make of car or truck stand to have the most platinum in their converters. Car owners are wise to take precautions when meth addicts can easily support their habits by stealing the platinum from their exhaust systems.
