C!

Should be C.
The problem with D is that it tends to imply that "scientific research" is in demand rather than the Platinum.

Highlighted in red: implies that it is scientific research that is in demand, not platinum. So, A, B and D are out.
Highlighted in blue: incorrect comparison - "platinum" and "that of gold"

Only C is devoid of these two mistakes.

I was in confusion between C & D.

But the difference between "in" & '"for" made me to choose C.
