The known mineral Pavonite AgBi 3S 5 shows a complex structure composed of NaCl type fragments but has not been studied from the thermoelectric point of view. We present initial results on the synthesis and themoelectric properties of synthetic AgBi 3S 5, which shows n-type metallic conductivity. In addition, the examination of the solid solutions AgSb xBi 3-xS 5 (x=0.3) is reported.
