Transition Metal Phosphorus Chalcogenides (TMPCs)

Transition metal phosphorus chalcogenides are compounds composed of transition metals, phosphorus, and chalcogen elements (like sulfur, selenium, or tellurium). These materials belong to a broader category known as transition metal chalcogenides, but with the unique inclusion of phosphorus.

These compounds are of particular interest in materials science due to their diverse and tunable electronic properties, which include semiconductivity, superconductivity, and magnetism. Their layered structure often leads to anisotropic physical properties, making them suitable for applications in electronics, optoelectronics, and energy storage.

One well-known example is FePS₃, which is a magnetic semiconductor and has been researched for its potential use in spintronic devices and as a magnetoelectric material. Transition metal phosphorus chalcogenides can also exhibit interesting optical and catalytic properties, further enhancing their utility in various technological applications.
