High-Pressure Synthesis of Intermetallic Compounds in Transition Metal - Metalloid Systems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


New intermetallic compounds synthesized under high pressure condition are reviewed. These include borides, suicides, phosphides, chalcogenides, germanides, and antimonides in various transition metal-metalloid systems. The characteristics of high-pressure synthesis are summarized and classified into three typical groups: 1. Pressure-induced phase transitions of ambient pressure phases, 2. Compound formations with new chemical compositions, and 3. Control of decomposition and/or sublimation of reactants. The various examples demonstrate that high-pressure synthesis is a powerful tool for developing new functional materials.
