Abstract

The phase stability of K-Ag intermetallics at high pressure is attributed to an almost complete electron transfer from the 4s bands of K to the 5s bands of Ag and the spatially-extended 5p bands of Ag. General principles, which were developed based on the study performed on the phase stability and electronic structure of these intermetallics, may be used in understanding the structural features and bonding interactions of other intermetallics under high-pressure conditions.
