Abstract:By pattern recognition chemical bond parameter method, the formability of NaZn13 type and BaCd11 type ternary compounds in RE-M Si (RE=La-Lu, M is any metallic element) systems has been investigated. And the existence of unknown ternary compounds is predicted by the pattern recognition method.
Key words: RE-M-Si system ternary compounds crystal type
