Abstract (in english)
   We have synthesized the binary phases in the system Pd-Sn-Te and evaluated them by means of X-ray powder-diffraction analysis, reflected light and electron microscopy. The experiments were performed using the evacuated silica tube method. The following phases were confirmed to be stable at 400°C: Pd17Te4, Pd20Te7, Pd9Te4, Pd3Te2, PdTe, PdTe2 in the Pd-Te system; Pd3Sn, Pd2Sn, Pd20Sn13, PdSn, PdSn2 in the Pd-Sn system; and SnTe in the Sn-Te system. The crystallographic data are summarized herein. We provide optical properties for the synthetic phases that can be expected to occur in nature: Pd17Te4, Pd20Te7, Pd3Te2, Pd20Sn13, PdSn, PdSn2, and SnTe. These should be sought in association with other minerals of the system, like kotulskite, merenkyite, telluroplladinite, keithconnite, atokite and paolovite.
