Abstract:

Our interests lie in studying and understanding the structure-property relationships in novel ternary intermetallics synthesized by metallic flux-growth methods. This review highlights the synthesis, structures and physical properties of ternary lanthanide – transition metal – main group element intermetallics ( Ln – T – X ), where T  = Co, Rh, Ir, Ni, Pd, and Pt, and X  = Ga, In, Sb and Sn. Several phases will be discussed, including Ln n T In 3 n +2 ( n  = 1, 2, ∞), CePdGa 6 , Ce 2 PdGa 12 , Ce 2 PdGa 10 , Ln NiSb 3 , Ln Ni 1− x Sb 2 ( x  ∼ 0.4) and Ln 3 Co 4 Sn 13 . In addition, we report the synthesis, structure characterization, and magnetic behavior from single crystals of Ln 3 Co 4 Sn 13 ( Ln  = Pr, Nd, Sm, Gd, Tb).
