Abstract

We present the synthesis and structure of the new chalcogenide compounds, Rb0.5Bi1.83Te3, APb2Bi3Te7 (A = Cs, Rb), K1.25Pb3.50Bi7.25Se15 and A1+xPb4-2xSb7+xSe15 (A = K, Rb). The layered structures of the first two telluride compounds are related to each other in a very interesting fashion. These compounds are n-type metallic conductors and solid solutions with Se and Sb have also been synthesized. K1.25Pb3.50Bi7.25Se1.5 and its Sb analogs have a complex three-dimensional structure composed of NaCl- and Bi2Te3-type building units. The thermal stability, melting behavior, electrical conductivity and thermopower of these compounds are reported.
