Prediction of New Compounds in the AHal–BHal3 Systems
Yetnonsynthesized compounds of the compositions A2BHal5, A3BHal6, and ABHal4 in systems
of mono and trivalent metal halides were predicted, and so was the type of their crystal structure under nor
mal conditions. The calculations were performed by precedentbased pattern recognition methods using a
special system for computer design of inorganic compounds. The new compounds were predicted using only
the data on the properties of elements and simple halides.
