Title: High thermoelectric performance in complex phosphides enabled by stereochemically active lone pair electrons

An alternative strategy to create optimum band shape for superior thermoelectric performance by utilizing stereochemically active lone pair electrons is proposed, which has been demonstrated in the Ag 6 Ge 10(1−x) Ga 10x P 12 .
