This paper reviews some recent studies of the borides, silicides and phosphides of the platinum metals. These phases, especially those with a high metal content, have very similar properties. After some general information on the binary systems, brief comments are made on the preparation and properties of the intermediate phases while some features of their crystal chemistry are presented in more detail.
