Abstract : The bulk of our recent studies in the area of single-source precursors to 13-15 semiconducting materials has focused primarily on Group 13-phosphides and arsenides. This work has led not only to the isolation and characterization of many new potential precursor compounds, but also to the facile synthesis of nanocrystalline 13- 15 materials. A review of this general area, however, reveals that little investigation has been done in the area of Group 13-antimonides, especially pertaining to the isolation of potential single-source precursors. In addition, only a handful of compounds containing a gallium or indium atom directly bonded to antimony have been characterized in the solid state. In an attempt to explore this uncharted area, we have synthesized and characterized four new compounds containing the Group 13-antimony linkage.
