    Abstract

    CoSb3 bulk materials were successfully prepared by Sb self-flux technique, and the synthesis conditions were widely investigated to obtain the high purity compounds utilizing a quantitative powder XRD study with the Rietveld analysis applying a multi-phase-fitting condition. The reaction temperature range for the Sb self-flux technique was extended up to 1123 K to promote the reaction in the Co-Sb system. The relation between the reaction temperature and the chemical composition is discussed to optimize the preparation conditions in the Sb self-flux technique.
