Title: THE PREPARATION AND IDENTIFICATION OF SOME INTERMETALLIC COMPOUNDS OF POLONIUM

THE PREPARATION AND IDENTIFICATION OF SOME INTERMETALLIC COMPOUNDS OF POLONIUM ABS>A micro technique for the preparation of intermetallic polonium compounds is described. Several polonides of the form MPo were prepared in this way and investigated by x-ray-powder diffraction; they include those of Be, Mg, Ca, Sr, Ba, Zn, Cd, Hg, and Pb. All these polonides, with the exception of Mg and Hg, were found to be isomorphous with the corresporiding compounds of S, Se, and Te. X-raydiffraction and crystal structure data are given. Reactions of Po with Ni, Cu, Ag, Au, C, Mo, Ta, and W are also described. (D.L.C.)
