    High purity CoSb3 bulk crystals have been successfully synthesized by Sb self-flux method and a relation between reaction conditions and chemical composition on the method has been systematically analyzed by powder XRD study using the Rietveld analysis. Sb self flux method at 923 K using 100 mesh Co elements can directly provide a single phase CoSb3 bulk crystal in a brief time of 10 h. Advantages of Sb self-flux methods will be discussed compared with other preparation methods.
