Abstract : Progress was made in the preparation of the U and Th compounds for evaluation as thermoelectric elements. It was decided to synthesize all compounds by a separate oper tion, and subsequently to use the high-pressure furnace to melt them into ingots. The nominal compositions, T Se, ThSe2, ThTe, ThTe2, US, US2, USe, and USe2 were synthesized. An increased measure of success was attained with regard to identification of the compounds by X-ray diffraction analysis.
