The known mineral Pavonite AgBi3S5 shows a complex structure composed of NaCl type fragments but has not been studied from the thermoelectric point of view. We present initial results on the synthesis and themoelectric properties of synthetic AgBi3S5, which shows n-type metallic conductivity. In addition, the examination of the solid solutions AgSbxBi3-xS5 (x=0.3) is reported.
