The probable cluster decay modes in platinum isotopes are predicted with the help of effective liquid drop model. The calculated half-lives are compared with those of universal decay law model and with the experimental data. The investigation affirms the decisive role of neutron magicity in the phenomenon of cluster radioactivity. It is found that the probability of cluster emission decreases with the increase in the neutron number of parent nucleus. Geiger-Nuttall plots of the probable decay modes show linear behaviour, which in turn leads to the equation for logarithmic half-life for the clusters emitted from Pt isotopes.
