Abstract:

The region from PdTe to PdTe2 has been examined by X-ray methods to establish the phase boundaries. The results confirm the existence of a continuous solid solution at high temperatures and narrow homogeneity regions for PdTe and PdTe2 at low temperatures. PdTe is a nonstoichiometric phase, at least below 500C. Magnetic susceptibility, electrical resistivity, thermoelectric power, and superconducting transition temperatures of PdTe and PdTe2 have been measured. Author
