Artificial niccolite and breithauptite were synthesized and thermal studies of the NiAs-NiSb system show that nickel arsenide and nickel antimonide form a complete solid solution series in one another.The change in cell dimensions is reflected in the regular change in powder diffraction patterns from NiAs to NiSb. Graphs are given for the calculation of the composition of the various members of the series by comparison of the X-ray powder diffraction photos.
