Series: Chemistry Research and Applications
BISAC: SCI013000

Antimony (Sb) is a semimetallic chemical element which can exist in metallic form or non-metallic form. Antimony has a variety of applications and properties which are described in the five chapters of this book. Chapter One describes the structural and electrochemical properties of Sb and examines its application in rechargeable batteries. Chapter Two provides a complete picture of phase equilibria in the Cu-Sb-S system obtained experimentally by differential thermal analysis and powder X-ray technique. Chapter Three characterizes new layered high-entropy alloys based on antimony and bismuth chalcogenides with tetradymite structure. Chapter Four determines the phase equilibria in the PbTe-Bi2Te3-Sb2Te3 system using differential thermal analysis, X-ray diffraction, and scanning electron microscopy techniques. Lastly, Chapter Five determines the thermodynamic properties of the manganese-antimony tellurides using an electromotive force method.
